    There is an Accounting of various Parts of the Plane on the Wikipedia Listing:

    "Two sections of the fuselage of the aircraft were initially hidden by David McLean and later retrieved. One part was sold to the former assistant secretary of the Battle of Britain Association, who gave it to a war museum in the US; this 17.5 by 23 inches (44 by 58 cm) part was later sold by Bonhams at auction.[97] Part of the fuel tank and a strut were offered for sale via Bonhams in 2014.[98] Other wreckage was salvaged by 63 Maintenance Unit between 11 and 16 May 1941 and then taken to Oxford to be stored. The aeroplane had been armed with four machine guns in the nose, but carried no ammunition.[99] One of the engines is on display at the RAF Museum while the Imperial War Museum displays another engine and part of the fuselage.[100]"
