Does anyone have a drawing or picture that shows the mounting on the starboard side of the cockpit, particularly the under the flap. Thanks to the helpful 1958biggles there is a clear photo here..post 248... https://forum.keypublishing.com/forum/historic-aviation/113439-spitfire-mk-i-p9374/page13?110762-Spitfire-Mk-I-P9374= Kind Regards Mike

Think Darryl Hackett has done something up for his MkI flight simulator.

Here is my attempt at a possible holder, I used the computer for scale. I have an original picture of a Spitfire Mk II that shows a entirely canvas clasp, as opposed to the part canvas and alloy clasp shown.Thoughts ? Cheers Mike

Thanks Sopwith, but not having a plan or photo to refer to has me concerned, as it is made from 25 thou and those four attachment points are going to get a workout everytime the computer is clipped in or out. So I still hopeful someone can help. Cheers Mike
