    looking for a 3 view drawings of Spitfire MK XIV c/e

    I want to convert my AW Spitfire XIV with bubble top to a Spitfire MK IX or XIV c/e with regular canopy. I can not find any decent 3 views drawing of the aircraft.

    Does anyone have a nice set of 3 views drawing of the MK IX or XIV c/e? Please email me at acwai@yahoo.com

    These are the best ones that I could find.

    Thanks!

    I have lots of profiles and detail drawings in various books but no large 3 Views.

    Ivan,

    Thanks for trying to get the needed drawings.

    I have started to build the aircraft. I can reuse almost 60-70% of the parts. I have to rebuild the wings, fuselage, rudder and elevators to use the new texture files from a CFS3 Spitfire aircraft. There are over 30 paint schemes to choose from.

    I checked everything I have and came up empty on that particular mark, sorry bud.
    Cheers,

    Alx,

    No, please send that again.

    Here is what the aircraft will look like. I used two different set of texture files to see how the wing will fit with the fuselage. The wing fairings will be built next. you can see the red and green alignment marks on the wings and elevators.

    Both versions will use the same texture files.

    Hello AcWai,

    I noticed a minor issue with your model.
    The RR Griffon engines on the Spitfire XIV rotated in the opposite direction to that of the Merlin, so the propellers should be pitched in the opposite direction.

    Ivan,

    Thanks for noticing the error. I have already reversed the propeller pitch with the version 3.0 update. It is now rotating clockwise (pilot view).

    Version 2.0 will be mothballed soon :-)

    Here is the current status of the new aircraft.

    It should actually be counter clockwise from a cockpit view.

    Propeller Rotation & Pitch

    This is a Spitfire MkIXc I built a long time ago.
    It shows the correct direction of propeller rotation for a Merlin.
    The Griffon rotates in the opposite direction to the Merlin.

    FWIW, All of the recent uploads in the CFS1 area have propeller pitch errors.
    One project even has a Tractor propeller on one side and a Pusher propeller on the other.

    - Ivan.
