The new resin sidewall has been molded with all the complex plumbing of the windscreen de-icer system, as well as the oxygen line. A number of other details have been added including new stringers with hollowed out ends and additional electrical wiring. The remote contactor was fitted to all Spitfires until well into 1944. Full color detailed installation instructions round out this new set.
