                    That's the one Rob, however as I finished painting it I got a phone call with an offer of some free aircraft grade ally primer, so may strip it and start again!

                            Painting some pieces of Me 109.

                            It was the other half of the belly pan from Ehrlers G2 Yellow 12 - I picked it up at Shoreham. The other half sold on ebay a couple of weeks ago (see ebay thread).

                            It was pretty mangled as it crash landed in Russia. The brown stuff on the bottom was oil - probably from when the engine was hit. The rest of the paint was an Arctic white

                            I was also stripping some pieces of Halifax that I bartered for at Shoreham.
                            I was surprised that the two main pieces are paper thin aluminium. Sandwiched in between are wooden spars and some thin slivers of wood surrounding what looks like a mineral foam. This internal sandwich is glued to the aluminium with a latex glue.

                            Oh yes and I bought a CDIA.
                            Kind Regards,

                            Brian

                                  Yes, I'm travelling out with the nephew of the missing pilot - I was last there in September 2006.

                                  Have you cleared your PM box yet??

                                        Fair point! I'm off to crawl back into the B(I)8/B6(Mod) Equipment Hatch from which I momentarily emerged...

                                        to which end..this is what I have been working on...




                                        A somewhat unglamorous English Electric elevator balance tab actuator lever..I'll leave you all to guess what I am due to fit it back on to...
