One of the greatest challeges of starting such a project is gathering enough data from reliable sources. If you are involved in any resturation projects, I would love to come in contact with you. Maybe you have some old pictures you could share or indeed complete panals that I could measure and gain first hand information.
Air Ministry Instrument Serial Numbers. Is this your thing?
To add the absolute final touches to the first two British instrument panels that feature the Spitfire Mk IX and the Hurricane 1b I would like to include the correct AM serial numbers on each instrument. Even though these will be almost invisible and, in at least 50% of the cases, obscured by the needle, I'd still like to include them! If you have any knowledge you'd be able to share with me I'd be extremely grateful. I just know that somewhere out there, there's somebody that been collecting exactly this type of information, possibly against the advise of his Doctor... waiting for the day to prove it wasn't all, just plain madness! This that's you... please take contact.
