ACCESSORIES
REPRO. WING MIRRORS
Vintage Supplies Ltd. Reproduction wing mirrors to the same size and pattern as fitted on the Champ in army service. The only way to tell these from originals is they don't have an FV no. on the back. The finish is brass, or can vary, so they need to be painted. Part no. 514 (half way down VS's webpage). Price around £43.20 incl. VAT.

STENCILS
