Hi All!
    Having built a Seafire 15 with an "A-Frame" hook, the new Airfix F.17 and an Aeroclub Seafire F.17 conversion, I find the Airfix rudder and the Aeroclub rudder (I.E. the F.17 rudder, which was allegedly also fitted to the Seafire 15 with the "stinger" hook) are different. The Airfix rudder is bigger, and it is noticeable.
    So the question is, were there three rudders for the Seafire 15/17?
    The first is the MK.XII type with the larger trim tab
    Second the Aeroclub "Mk.17" rudder
and lastly the Airfix "MK.17" rudder?
