FAV3a - Fairey Fasteners rectangular floating Spitfire type. New design: All parts are identical looking to the originals, and are complete with embossed writing where appropriate.  The cross-piece in the locking mechanism of the 40 and 30 mm type are round bar instead of the original T shaped section.  This makes replacement of the cross-piece considerably easier (it is held in place with a spring dowel and not soldered); this minor alteration reduces the unit cost significantly, and means that replacement pins can be easily fitted.
