These blueprints scanned from the originals are invaluable if you want to fully understand the machine or if you're like me you want to secretly build a fully functional cockpit section in your daughters bedroom!!
The downloaded files come in a RAR format and once extracted are in a logical order, following Vickers/Supermarine's original document order. Also included is a file of useful documents covering the canopy, Wheels and harness release gear.
The blueprints themselves are in a Tiff format so if you're trying to view these on a mobile device you'll need additional software to view them, there's plenty of free Tiff readers on the app stores.
Going through the blueprints I've only found a few that are difficult to make some of the details out, the vast majority are nice and clear.
If you are trying to create any 3d models of components pay attention to the amendment section on the plans as these can sometimes explain why your model doesn't quite match up, obvious I know, but easy to forget!
For what you get the price is incredibly reasonable, my only criticism would be that you only get two downloads and 24 hours before they expire. For some reason if I download the file to my mobile I cant then download a copy onto my laptop? Not a big enough issue to mark the product down though.
If you're interested in the Spitfire and how it was constructed these blueprints are for you.
