    Hi, guys.
    I'm looking for engineering drawings for the teardrop canopy for a lowback Spitfire. I'm specifically interested in the Mk.XIV, but I'm sure all the other lowbacks were similar. Anything relating to the highback canopy will not work.
    Thanks,

    Did you try drawing 35930, sheet 20 at Hendon? Should be the same as a
    Mk XIV.

    To the best of my information, all low backs used the same canopy, T-6.
