Spitfire MkVIII / MkIX by Brian Taylor

Traplet Publications's Spitfire MkVIII / MkIX by Brian Taylor

This plan is for the Brian Taylor 83 inch MkXVIII or MkIX Spitfire (all details on the same plan) to suit 1.50 cu. in. four stroke. Brian has designed this with mainly balsa construction in order to reduce the weight and necessary engine size for the model. The plans have all the construction notes and scale details for the model. They can fit on A0 or 36" roll stock, printed at the required lengths. Not trying to advertise on behalf of anyone, but in order to help source parts for this model, I got a wood kit from Laser Cut Kits Australia. Traplet Publications supply a canopy, wood kit, aluminium spinner, F/G cowl and F/G carbie intake. Mick Reeves does a 1/5 scale instrument panel which should be able to be altered to suit the 1/5.33 of this model. Also, Mike Skingle sells 1/5 scale resin exhausts (round and fishtail), cannons, cannon snubs, mirror and antennna, which are all nicely finished. As an aside, the full size aircraft (grey nurse) in the thumbnail lives and flies at Temora, NSW, Australia, which is only 62kms from my home, so I've seen her in flight!

To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.
