Hello

I am very slowly rebuilding Spitfire Mk1 K9851, I am trying utilise as much original parts from K9851 as I am able too along with as many original parts obtained from other spitfires, where an original part cannot be obtained then I am using newly manufactured parts using either patterns or original Supermarine drawings.
But its not just parts that rebuild an aircraft, I am also seeking any photographs of this aircraft whilst marked up as WZ-I whilst with 19 squadron or whilst with 7OTU/57 OTU, along with any photo-copies of pilots log books who flew her.
Have attached a photo of the trial fit together of frame 5.

Regards

John
