AMAZING Spitfire referance book
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Had a look at probably the ultimate Spitfire book last night. If anyone is planning to do a Mk IX or IXV (14??) scale project, you should really have a look at this book!
Not only does it have detailed close up photos of darn near every inch of these aircraft but it also has diagrams of where Supermarine used roundhead (dome) rivets or flush rivets! There are detailed drawings of the each frame and even photos inside the tail section! For an idea of what the book contain click here: http://monfortonpress.com/book_pages/jacket.htm on the left side there is a link for Spitfire drawings to give you an idea of the detailed drawings.
This book is not cheap! $140.00 But if you were doing a competition quality Spit, this book would be invaluable.
Gravity works. I've tested it......often!!!
