    Spitfire Instrument panel lettering

    Am I correct in thinking that only MKI, MKII and MkV panels had engraved lettering whilst every MK thereafter had placards. I thought I read it on an old forum post the other week but typically I can't find it now I need it. I presume some MK IX's also had engraved panels if they were MKV conversions.
    I can't recall seeing a MK IX or later panels with lots of placards. Has anyone got a decent photo of a panel, preferably MK IX, with placards.

      Do you know the history of your panel
      Was it a MK V conversion to a MK IX

        Don't think so. There's no signs of it having been altered

        The only damage is around the hole for the Oxygen Regulator, that's an actual break, and some bubbling on the top right hand edge which implies it's been in a fire.
