Shuttleworth Workshop

By dark_lord  
As promised and requested, more from behind the scenes at the Shuttleworth Collection.
The lead image is a corner of the workshop, V1 and V2 are of the Spitfire under restoration, and V3 is of freshly painted parts hanging up to dry (Airfix kits would have been great at this scale Smile).
Some aircraft later in the week.

Thank you to everyone commenting or voting on Cat Bells Shadows, and to mac for his UA.

Nice set, V1 & V2 seem to be different aeroplanes, or are they the same one at different stages of restoration?

The same aircraft, just different angles (the surrounding stuff around and about is the same).

Airfix kits... I'm sure the Shuttleworth engineers have fewer problems getting the propellors to go round. (It looks odd now, but I'm sure that used to be an acceptable spelling...)
