Well dear friends, you are saying that the boost gauge of Mk IIb ended with 8? Well, and this what model is? I see the boost gauge end with 24: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Spiti ... ntrols.jpg
Also, the wop3 Mk Ia end with 4, the wwii wop2 Spitfire Mk Ia end with 16. Now what? The a2a wwii wop2 Spitfire Mk Ia is historically not correct? Or there was two Mk I with boost gauges different? I am getting a little confused.
Thank you dear friends
For starters, THAT is a photo of a Mk IX!!!
You simply can not look at ANY museum aircraft to get details of the cockpit in 1940
because, as I have told you..the aircraft that SURVIVED were updated constantly...
MANY hours research went into establishing the fine details of the cockpits.
Yes, the WOP2 Mk Ia was done on the BEST information available at that time
and is much more akin to a Mk V as many museum examples examined exhibit these features but are still LISTED as being "Mk I" or "Mk II".
The ONLY way to establish proper cockpit detail is to examine original documents, manufacturing updates, improvement paperwork and such like...which was done,
As I've said, the Boost gauges are accurate at the time depicted...end of...
