Supermarine Spitfire

The starboard forward lower wing fairing from a Mk IX Spitfire that was acquired from a restoration company at Duxford. The part can be seen in situ in the line drawing below.

The lower section retains the original aircraft grey paint and the "JACK HERE" stencil.

Faintly scratched in the reverse are the letters STB for starboard.

The rear has thick chromate paint that we have left intact. Hence we have not been able to check for stamps or part numbers so cannot confirm if this is WW2 or later. It is however from a flying Mk IX spitfire as evidenced by the wear on the jacking point and grease upon receipt.

We have painted the upper section in RAF Dark Green paint and added the Eagle Squadron name and fighting Eagle emblem that Walt Disney developed for the American Airmen who flew with the RAF - originally in Hurricanes and later in Spitfires from Aug 1941 until Sept 1942. The lower image is of a 71 squadron Spitfire with this emblem.

This emblem was also used by the 334th Fighter Squadron on their Spitfires.

This panel was acquired from a restoration company based at IWM Duxford.

Size is 66cm (max) x 38 cm (max).
