The Supermarine Spitfire is probably the most beautiful fighter which ever rose in the sky. The first flight of R.J.Michell’s masterpiece took place in March 1936 and the “Spit” proved immediately as the ideal aircraft to hold their own against the previously unbeaten German Luftwaffe. Driven by the powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine, the Spitfire was almost 600km fast and also had an excellent maneuverability which was of immense importance at the then so-called “Dogfights” or curve battles. These strengths made the Spitfire an ideal tool during fierce aerial fights over southern England and the English Channel in the cloudy summers of 1940. The Spitfire was a symbol of “The few”, so-called by Winston Churchill, in the Battle of Britain. It asserted itself in the struggle for air superiority over England and thus acquired its historical place in history.

Here you have the unique opportunity to get a highly detailed limited edition of a cockpit replica of the Supermarine Spitfire, the famous English fighter which was primarily known for the Battle of Britain. To achieve the authentic look of the cockpit, original instruments of Fighter Commands of the former Royal Air Force (RAF) were used as templates and references.
By thus created detailed and scaled optics of the instruments, switches and arrangement it gives a very detailed impression of the “work” of British Fighter Pilots in World War II.
As the reproduction of the bulky mechanics on the back were abandoned and there’s also a steel cable bracket located on each instrument panel, a chunky and heavy bracket can be dispensed. Due to its low weight it is now possible to place your unique copy of aviation as a visual highlight at home on the wall.

To protect each cockpit panel at the front, it also was provided with a high quality customized transparent acrylic sheet which protects the valuable part from damage. Be sure to order this unique piece of history today!
