Spitfire Mk. IX wooden cutaway

Click to enlarge image

The flagship in Delphic’s offering is this beautiful framed wooden cutaway of the Spitfire Mk. IX. Through an unique process which Delphic brought into ultimate precision, this model is crafted from six layers of basswood that are mounted on an elegant baltic blue matte board and sealed behind glass in a cherry finish hardwood frame. It really is a hybrid between a model and a print – a print that has real depth and shadows or, from a different perspective, an intricate model that never gets dusty and can be hung from the wall.

The cutaway has been based on over 3,000 original Supermarine construction blueprints and photographs. The left hand side of the cutaway shows the exterior view of the famous Old Flying Machine Company’s Spitfire Mk. IX (MH434) as it was in 1943. The right hand side exposes all of the inner workings of a Spitfire such as the Rolls-Royce Merlin 63 engine, flight controls, radios, etc. Also included are the top view of the aeroplane to depict the wings and the front view to, hopefully, show how the Spitfire was seen in the Luftwaffe pilot’s rear view mirror.

Size: 20½” x 8½”

Spitfire Mk. IX – P-51 Mustang cutaway combo

Sometimes a pair of cutaways tells a better story than just one. Why not set on a pair of the greatest fighter aircraft of all time as an ultimate gift for an aviation enthusiast. The wooden cutaway of North American P-51 Mustang is a perfect companion to the Spitfire cutaway presented above. Both are in the same elegant finish and matching size and will look great positioned side-by-side on the wall.

Why not make a statement with this high-quality Spitfire T-shirt. The cutaway design printed in large size at the back of this durable shirt is detailed enough to show the intricate details of full colour exterior, cutaway and front views of the Spitfire, all grouped in technical manual style. The chest logo contains an unmistakable silhouette of the Spitfire in plan view.

Each of these Hanes® shirts is created in Cumberland, Maryland using the latest state of the art printing methods. Because of the method of printing, the image has excellent vibrancy and has become part of the shirt so you can not even feel the image. The result is a very soft, heavyweight shirt that holds the dye colours without fading.

Available in sizes: M, L, XL, XXL

My son and I are big fans of Spitfires. My son is having his 6th birthday on August 17th and I would like to give him the T-shirt as a birthday present. I am interested in the coffee mug and T-shirts. I am from Indonesia, how can I purchase them and how much do they cost. FYI, I haven’t got any credit cards so information on alternative payment method is highly appreciated. Thank You.
