Spitfire Mk1 headrest dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I am building a 1/24 Spitfire that came without the frame 11 that supports the seat and is fitted with a headrest for the pilot.

Does anyone know its dimensions, diater amd length, so I can scratch build a new one?

 

Regards Toby

The Wingleader book on the Spitfire 1 (page 30) has an excellent diagram showing the arrangement of the seat, seat armour and head armour.

 

It doesn't give actual dimensions but you should be able to scratch build to meet the relative proportions shown.

 

HTH.
