Full-Scale Wooden Spitfire Reproduction Project Offered For Sale

A wooden Spitfire project has hit the market.

The unfinished reproduction is described as incorporating the “same design as the Mosquito with ply/balsawood/ply skins.” It was reportedly “built to fly for a Merlin engine to be fitted,” although approval for the build could not be obtained.

The project is touted as “a great static or taxing full size replica” and can reportedly be supplied with “fibreglass skins, FG wings, and all other parts to finish at extra cost.” It is based in Newquay, UK and is currently available for bidding here.
