The picture above was taken in the nose section of a different aeroplane that is a part of the Nanton's exposition. It was altered for display purposes.

That will be me then . . . . (Starting my HK model in the New Year)

Great photos Martin

Is there any possibility that you can get a photo of the tail wheel strut at the back as I'm trying to suss out where the towing fork was inserted ??????

I PRESUME there are two holes in the top of the strut near to the axle for towing ??

Many thanks for sharing what must have been a wonderful day out  . . . .
