    Hi!

    I'm looking for this engine's dimensions and how did it installed into the spitfire-s...mostly the brackets...and some picterure of a Spitfire without the engine...because I'm a modeller and I want to made a Spitfire Mk XIV. in 1:48 scale.

    Thanks!

    Thank's a lot! But the Spitfire mk V and XIV's mounting is not the same...unfortunetly...because the mk V had a Merlin engine...
    Mk XIV had this mounting: [​IMG]
