Here's the latest Spitfire spade for the cannon version.

From the guy that makes them.

I am glad to share with you my last model kit in full scale, It is the typical Spade Grip that was fitted to all the cannon-armed version of the Spitfire, when starting from 1940, began to reach frontline combat units. Following the early Marks equipped with the famous “a” wing with 8 Browning machine guns, the “b” wings required a new device that allowed pilots to fire on their choice machine guns and cannon, so a cumbersome and large switch was fitted on top of the Spade Grip. The proposed model, a replica of the serial number AH8068, is a resin kit casted with non toxic resin and metal, composed of 21 parts, very easy to be assembled and painted. This particular spade grip was fitted to almost all the Spitfire variants (except the MkI and MkVa) e is still one of the most remarkable features of this iconic British fighter.



Thanks to Maurizio Di Terlizzi for the images and information.

I'm sure you agree it looks the business.

Anyone interested just pm me and I'll forward your interest onto him.
