I'm testing my limited knowledge of Spitfires now but would I be correct to assume that Mk.I's and Mk.II's were never tropicalized using the Vokes filter and therefore any PR Spitfires with such a filter would have been based upon the Mk.V airframe? If the latter is true, would I be correct to assume that the Mk.V's rounded oil cooler would be needed plus a Mk.V propellor unit? I'm using the Pavla set designed for the Airfix Mk.I which only shows to use the supplied resin oil cooler which doesn't look rounded. If my assumptions are correct, I can use the Airfix Va as the starting point with a spare Vb propellor and spinner. Regards Clive
Hello all, I'm currently researching the Vokes filter for my Hurricane IIC build. None of the plans seem to fit the filters I see on the period photographs. Also it would appear to have slight differences between the filters. Maybe some were field replacements and others factory-installed? I have also seen the words 'Aerovee' or 'Aero-Vee' associated with 'Vokes'. What are they? Brand name, variants? I'm counting on you Hurricane fans to shed a light on that matter. Thank you for your help, Cheers, Quang
