The cutaway is created from over 3,000 original Supermarine construction blueprints and photographs. The left hand side of the cutaway shows the exterior view of The Old Flying Machine Company's Spitfire Mark IX (MH434) as it was in 1943. The right hand side exposes all of the inner workings of a Spitfire such as the Rolls-Royce Merlin 63 engine, flight controls, radios, etc. Also included are the topview of the aeroplane to depict the wings and the frontview to, hopefully, the depict how the Spitfire was seen in the Luftwaffe pilot's rearview mirror.
The framed size is 20.5" wide by 8.5" high.
Natural Basswood finish (as pictured) is mounted on a Baltic Blue matte and surrounded by a rich cherry finish frame.
Brass and Steel finishes are mounted on a black matte within a black frame which gives a very contemporary look.
