Detailed Description

Full-scale, MK5-9 Spitfire wood and composite replica. Same project as one presently offered for $1.5 million. Total package - plane, spares, company, tooling, etc. This Spit is original in the cockpit (panel, seat, engine controls, gunsight, compass). Modern disc brakes, electric trim, hydraulic gear. Lighter, stronger, smoother, and better performance than original. Far more economical to fly. If you have the financial and technical ability to really complete this well advanced project, contact seller. Serious inquiries only. No tire kickers.

The project includes, amongst most everything, a spinner, Hamilton Standard heavy-duty tracker hub, and new blades by Zack Blade Co., reshaped to match MK5-9 Spitfire 3-blade prop and milled to modern airfoil, balanced and painted. These are 0-time blades. Pumps and governor controls. The engine is a 0-time Allison V1710-63/-83. New inertia starter, alternator, pumps, carburetor (also a new rebuild with papers). The pistons have been re-machined and have had Keystone rings installed. The supercharger ratio has been changed to 8.1 to 1. Oil and antifreeze coolers are new aluminum. All plumbing. Retractable tail wheel and plumbing. Landing gear struts, wheels, disc brakes. Tires are new. Look at the pictures to see what I've missed. By the way, the interior is ALL genuine Spitfire: panel, controls and seat. The tail feathers are finished and painted.
