Title: Spitfire Cannon Stubs/Fairings - What kind of Material?
Post by: ronl on October 06, 2015, 07:44:23 PM
What were the cannon stubs/fairings that were inserted into the unused outboard cannon ports on the Spitfire "c" wings?  I have seen references to them being wood or rubber.  Also, when the e-wing was introduced with the .50 cal in the inner cannon bay, what was used to seal the gun port?  Was it tape, or something else?  Thanks in advance.
