    I have just bought a load of WWII era parts of a plane. Not knowing much about these I would love to be able to identify what they cam from

    Can't be sure but the wing tip looks like that of a Hawker Sea Fury or Tempest.

    I have just found the following numbers on a small panel (not in the pictures so unsure if it is the same plane) 64816SHT91 K02 ISS 5 and V133. Would these help to indicate the aircraft? Thanks

    Looks like a post war training colour scheme,early to mid 1960s, but tricky to identify the type, if indeed both sections are from the same aircraft.

    EDIT: Just had another look. If those colours are light grey and red, then the period is even later - 1970's to late 1980s.

    The numbers are a help but I don't have access to cross references. The first one appears to be a part number that references a drawing number (the clue is the term "SHT" which could mean Sheet 91 of drawing 64816). There are other possibilities, inclding the manufacturer's heat or batch number on rolled aluminum sheet.

    I agree with Terry and GG. I doubt these parts are of WW2 era plane. Also I don't think these parts are of the Tempest or Sea Fury although these wing tips really look quite similar to those of the mentioned kites..

    Thanks for your replies, I have found out they are from a Vickers 648 Varsity.
