    Looking for a copy of the Mk.I pilot notes for the Spitfire.

    I've only seen one page, so it must exist somewhere.

    Anyone Help?

    I've only ever seen a copy in the National Archives, in Kew; I'm not sure that even the RAF Museum has a copy. Mk.II is easy, but that's little help.

    I can't really get you a copy but I can pass on any info inside. Looking for anything in particular?

    interested in the cockpit layout to ensure the 3D model I'm making is correct as I can make it.

    Hmm, the forum keeps wanting to shrink the image a bit.

    I have a 1200x1000 version if that one is too small, if you want to try email.

    EDIT: ah nevermind. If you right click and save as.. it saves as the full version. All good.

    If that's a Mk I pit it would be a late production one. It has the engine driven gear retraction systm as opposed to the hand pump which was phased out on late Mk I's and on the Mk II.

    Yes it is a late Mk.I, so I need to make sure I do put in the later stuff. The model I'm making has the two bladed wooden prop, the flat canopy and the initial cockpit fittings. It didn't last long in service as the enhancements came quick over the first few months of the war.

    I will be making the later marks, some time over the next few months.
