Art horizon Climb/descent ASI (in MPH) Altimeter Will also consider anyhting else anyone has going spare... Cheers, Elliott - elliott1940@yahoo.com / whitley_project@yahoo.co.uk

RE: Instruments needed... Hello Elliot. You should try (bjaircraft.com) also try Margaret Earnshaw at (spares@airsam.clara.net) They have lots of parts for all british warbirds. most of them are new hence the cost. I will keep on the lookout for anything that could help your project. Do you have photos of these instruments that I can go by? Cheers. Peter

RE: Instruments needed... Thanks for the message... Here is a link to a great site on the Battle of Britain. Our blind flying panel will be identical to the one in this spit. http://www.raf.mod.uk/bob1940/spitfire.html Elliott
