Hi Guys
While I was at Duxford a couple of weeks ago I saw this in the workshop being restored.

Hi Derek,
Great pictures, this kit will surely be a rivet counters paradise (or maybe nightmare), more akin to steam locomotive modelling.
Also as an engineer, must comment on those amazing roof trusses, compared to modern designs. Were they sitting in there when they came up with the inspiration for the Wellington Bomber ?

Great photos Derek, thanks for posting. Here's a brain teaser. There are four aicraft in the photo or at least bits of them, so identities?
