    Another Glynne Powell Mosquito.

    Hi All,
    From the 8th of June
    via:- Gary Bridger
    For the Mosquito fans amongst you, another Mosquito fuselage has just come off the moulds at Glyn Powell’s workshop, South Auckland NZ. This is a bomber variant. A masterpiece in wood.

    Thanks for posting those pictures Geoff.
    Very nice.
    I can think of five other shells from these moulds.
    - Windsor Ontario got the prototype.
    - Gerry Yagen
    - Paul Allen
    - Rod Lewis
    - Glynns own Mosquito (that had been offered for sale).

    What is the fate of this most recent set?

        Very nice, but I wonder if anyone will be brave enough to step out of the box and commission a Sea Mosquito?!

          fantastic work, its great to see how they are / were formed



            The confirmation of the bomber type I presume means confirmation of this being the new fuselage for B.Mk.IV DZ542 owned by the UK Pathfinder Group...??
            I was with it all the way until letting the brakes off..........


              It doesn't seem to be that straightforward. The T.43 will be Glyn's partially-complete Aussie-built example.

              We are presently considering two different Mosquito airframes, and we are in advanced discussions on a fighter-bomber T43 variant. Whilst the MK.IV which is referenced on our website, remains very much in our sights too, the latest consideration has its different benefits. Principally, the fighter-bomber could be completed and delivered to the UK within 20 months, which in itself is very exciting, but even more so is that it is a dual-seat, dual-control aircraft, which would be a fantastic resource adding to the Flight Safety aspects of our mission, in helping maintain excellent currency for pilots already flying the Mosquito, but offering a hugely important capability for new pilots converting to type.

              The MK.IV aircraft is still going to be a 33-36 month project. This airframe is also still within our reach, but we require some additional funding to secure it
