Was wondering what the dual oxygen tank looking "thing" is on the port side. The instructions (Hasegawa, Mk Vb) indicate it should be red...which I take to mean it is some type of fire suppresant system. But, others on the internet have suggested it's an oxygen tank...which is confusing because the pilot's oxygen is behind the seat.
It could be purple for all I know..but I hope there's someone out there with much better insight than me...any help on identifying the proper color and function would be appreciated!
PS Work report time was delayed 2hrs due to snow...nothing like 2 early morning hours to enjoy coffee and some "alone time" with a Spitfire!!!
