Warbird Restoration Projects

We are contacted frequently by warbird enthusiasts and historians intent on recovering or preserving some aspect of military aviation history.  So we thought it was a good idea to start assembling information here of what is going on in order to help people connect and share the available information. 

Hawker Hurricane

Midland Aircraft Recover Group

The Midland Aircraft Recovery Group is working up a project to rebuild a Hawker Hurricane.  Contact Mark Evans through their website contact page.

Steve Adams

Steve Adams is planning to scratch build a 1/24 Hurricane with one side completed and the opposite side cut-away to reveal the inner workings including working control cables plus electrical, fuel and hydraulic lines. 

Steve has completed similar models in the past and plans to donate the finished product to a suitable aviation museum.​

Supermarine Spitfire

Ratcliffe Spitfire project

The Ratcliffe College are undertaking a fascinating project to combine education with physical skills by building a complete Supermarine Spitfire replica.  Check out the Ratcliffe Spitfire project here with progress bulletins since March 2012 and the Ratcliffe Spitfire blog.
