Being on a book buying spree,  it seems I'm in need of books on the early Spitfire.

 

I already have  Andy Saunders "Spitfire Mk.I P9374" and the Haynes book on the Merlin.

Any other that are 'must have's?

I'm more into the technical side of stuff, so rebuilds, restorations, aircraft in bits etc, would have my preference.

"Spitfire  Classic Aircraft  No.1  Their history and how to model them". Roy Cross & Gerald Scarborough 1971 PSL Publishing .  Based on improving the Airfix 1/24th Spitfire lots of useful diagrams and information despite its age. 

 

"Spitfire In My Workshop"  David Glenn. How he built the 1:5th scale model in the entrance hall to the RAF Museum Hendon. Lots of building techniques. https://www.spitfireinmyworkshop.net

Love that 'Spitfire in my workshop'  book!

I have something similar from my car building days by Gerald Wingrove.

Another book that teaches not only scratchbuilding skills, but 'eye' skills as well.
