I talked with Nelson today, and he confirmed that the Seafire does indeed have it's original Griffin engine, but the props are cut down blades off a Shackleton. Apparently there are NO original blades (or probably hubs) available.

He also said the plane is out of the paint shop (except for the spinner, some discussion on the original color) and that things are looking good for a first flight at the end of March/first of April.

I plan on being there and will get some photos to post.
