Spitfire Spade grip with camera button (pg2 cont)

Here we have a Spitfire Spade grip with a Twin Rocker Firing Button and a Camera button. Unfortunately the Part Number has worn off.

 This is in its original condition and we have not had any restoration work undertaken on it. There is some pitting on the grip at the base and on the back where the covering has come away.

The Twin Cannon and Machine Gun Firing Buttons Depress and return without sticking and the safety switch locks.

This also has an electrical button which is held in a bracket. This Bracket has number 1861 2AXG and says Camera Only.

The Button has Reference 5D/534 and it depresses and returns. This tells me it could have been used on a Photo Reconnaissance Spitfire

This Grip would have been used on a Cannon armed Spitfire so anything from the Mk.V Onwards

349=Spitfire MK VC

69=Folding flap bottom

Sorry out of stock more always wanted please contact me.

Original Spitfire flap lever (pg2 cont)

This is pretty much the hardest to find and rarest of all the parts in the Spitfire instrument panel. Used throughout all Mk's of the Spitfire its raises and lowers the flaps . It comes fitted in its original mounting plate and hose from the  MK VC Spitfire although it can be fitted to all MK's of Spitfire.

Shown under the MK VC Spitfire fitted with a tropical air filter.

In October 1941 the Mk Vc appeared. This used the universal c wing developed for the Mk III, which could carry either eight machine guns, four 20mm cannon or two cannon and four machine guns. The two cannon/ four machine gun combination was most common, as the four cannon version was significantly heavier, reducing performance.

 Repro flap valve for Spitfire panel A (pg2 cont)

This is repro flap lever made of resin I bought this with some other parts and is a one off. It may suit someone waiting to find an original. If you want a top quality reproduction see the next listing.

 Repro flap valve for Spitfire panel (pg2 cont)

These reproduction flap levers have been a long time coming. They are a vast improvement over the cast alloy ones we had previously.

They are perfect copies of the visible section of the flap valve and are completely machined from steel by hand.

They contain a piston and a spring so that they snap crisply up and down as in the original. I am confident there is not another reproduction of this quality currently being produced.

They have a nice heavy feel to them and will complete your Spitfire panel to the highest standard.

The piece shown above was used in the MK V onwards

On demand we can also supply the type used in the early Spitfires which had a more angular bracket see below.

Harness release(pg2 cont)

This is a nice little harness release and cable from a so far unidentified aircraft. It came with a collection of Beaufighter  instruments so it may be Beaufighter but not sure. contact me if you have any further  information.

 The Spitfire had a very similar lever for releasing the pilots harness in an emergency bail out situation.

A literal "jack of all trades", the Beaufighter served as a ground attack fighter, a night fighter, a torpedo bomber and an anti-shipping strike aircraft. It served in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East Theatres. It's heavy armament (the MK.VI carried six wing-mounted .303 calibre machine guns and four  fuselage mounted 20mm cannons as well as eight 90lb. rockets under the wing) and long range made it a devastating weapon wherever and however it was deployed. The Italians called it "il flagello di Dio", which meant the "Scourge of God" and the Japanese referred to it as the "Whispering Death". It obviously had a profound impact on it's opponents

Bristol Blenheim Throttle (pg2 cont)

Here we have a  throttle from a Bristol Blenheim. Please note this is from the English Blenheim and not the Canadian Boly.

Clearly it is not in A1 condition as can be seen in the pictures but is a very rare item, all the levers move and as far as I can tell the throttle is complete is complete.

Bristol Blenheim/Bolingbroke Yoke (pg2 cont)

In superb original condition this is an extremely rare grip. This yoke is for the Canadian Built Bolingbroke which is the Canadian version of the Bristol Blenheim.

It differs in that the firing button is on the right as apposed to the left as in the British version.

British version seen under for comparison only the grip on the left is the one for sale.

As early as 1937, a prototype variant of the Blenheim, known as the Bolingbroke was flown. It had been requested by the Canadian government as a  potential replacement for the  AVRO ANSON in transport and training. This machine was taken on strength by the RCAF. A long nosed version was developed (to allow the pilot to see over the bombardier's prone position)

Halifax Aileron parking brake (pg2 controls)

This is a really nice piece of kit complete with its original stowage bag. It is for locking the control column to the pilots seat when the aircraft is on the ground to prevent damage to the ailerons. It would have been stored on board when not in use hence the brackets on the bag.

 This has now been indentified as Halifax. The quality stamp is EEP. this is the code letter for English Electric Preston.

Click on the pictures under to enlarge part number

In 1938 English Electric became a 'shadow' aircraft manufacturer, able to build other companies designs for the war effort. Preston was chosen as the aircraft factory and an airfield at Samlesbury was built. 80 aircraft a month were built at the peak during 1944.

During the war production was spread across other sites in Preston to protect it in case of attack. It appears the Germans weren't aware of what the factory built.

A successful run of 5000 Hampden, Halifax and Vampires led to the design of the Canberra and Lightning

1930s Hawker Throttle Quadrant pg2 controls)

Here is what I believe from my research to be a throttle quadrant from a 1930s Hawker Bi Plane. The closest match for it that I can see is a Hawker Nimrod although its similar in design to all the throttles used by Hawker in the 1930s. Clearly it is only the throttle control and the complete throttle would have another lever controlling the mixture.

The throttle has the following numbers stamped on it. 50967 :967:10967:209: The inspectors stamp are all 87.

Handley page Halifax D.F Loop Aerial Wheel(Page2 cont)

A really nice and extremely rare wheel for a remote D.F. loop drive (aerial). Would be located in the Wireless Ops position, of the Halifax. A/M crown so manufactured before 1944.

This has the Air Ministry Ref: 10J/10595

The second of Britain's four-engine bombers to enter frontline service, Handley Page's Halifax has forever lived in the shadow of Avro's superb Lancaster. However, it was a Halifax which became the first RAF 'heavy' to drop bombs on Germany when No.35 Squadron raided Hamburg on the night of 12th/13th March 1941. Between 1941-45, the Halifax completed some 75,532 sorties (compared with the Lancaster's 156,000) with Bomber Command alone, not to mention its sterling work as both a glider tug and paratroop carrier with the Airborne Forces, maritime patrol mount with Coastal Command and covert intruder with the SOE. The Halifax was also the only RAF four-engine bomber to see action in the Middle East. Built in six major variants (and numerous sub-series within these variants) which differed primarily in the type of engine employed, no fewer than 6176 Halifax's were completed for the RAF between October 1939 and November 1946

Pedal modification for Stirling Rudder Pedals (pg2 cont)

He we have a very rare set of top rudder pedals for the Stirling. These were introduced as a modification in a similar way to the improvements in the Spitfire rudder pedals although for a different purpose. They simply clamp on to the existing pedals to help out the more vertically challenged pilots.

The Short Stirling was the RAF's first four engine bomber of the second World War. It took a major part in the strategic offensive until 1943, then it was switched to transport duties.

MK IV Auto control lever Avro Lincoln (pg2 cont)

This is the autopilot control from an Avro Lincoln.

A/M 6H/571

The Avro Type 694 Lincoln was a four-engine bomber and was a direct a development of the Lancaster.  It was originally known as the Lancaster Mark IV and V but later renamed Lincoln I and II.

 

The first of three prototypes (PW925) flew for the first time at Manchester's Ringway Airport on 9th June 1944. The type was primarily intended for use in the Far East theatre during the Second World War, but only entered RAF service in August 1945 and therefore was not deployed overseas prior to the end of the War.

 

The Lincoln reached operational status in August 1945 and remained in RAF service until March 1963.

It was used operationally in Kenya during the Mau Mau Uprising during the 1950s and (by the RAAF) in the Malayan emergency.  The aircraft also served within the Argentinean Air Force.

Airspeed Oxford/Mosquito Control Column and yoke(pg2 cont)

This is a control column and yoke from an Airspeed Oxford, the yoke appears identical to the one used in the Mosquito. The yoke and column are in excellent condition.

Airspeed Oxford cockpit shown below.

The Airspeed Oxford was an important British and Commonwealth aerial trainer that served through World War Two. The system appeared in two notable forms as the Oxford I and the Oxford II with a few sub variants sprinkled in between. Charged with the training of bombing and gunners for the Oxford I model and training of radio and navigation personnel in the Oxford II, the Oxford series as a whole was an indispensable addition to the United Kingdom - serving to train numerous aircrews

Heavy Bomber camera control (pg2 cont)

This is a good condition Control for the camera on heavy bombers to capture the fall of the bombs. It controls the flash release and is marked in thousands of feet.

Would have been fitted to many types of Heavy Bomber including the Lancaster. I am not sure if it was fitted to smaller bombers or recognisance aircraft but this is a possibility.

This Spitfires used for this purpose were unarmed to save weight could fly at very high altitudes and they were fast.

This control was mounted on the main Spitfire instrument panel. This one comes in its original box.
