English WWII Collection Auctioned

A replica Supermarine Spitfire, sold as part of a collection of rare aircraft memorabilia dating from the Second World War, fetched £34,000 when it went under the hammer.

The sale, which took place at Sutton on Saturday, was organized by Cambridgeshire, England, auctioneers Cheffins. It raised a total of £160,000 – double the expected amount.

Star of the show was a replica fiberglass Spitfire, complete with fully instrumented cockpit, that sold for £34,000 – around £24,000 more than its guide price. It was snapped up by a telephone bidder from Scotland who has a keen interest in Second World War aircraft and noteworthy feats of British engineering in particular.
