        Hi Peter,

        Yes, that's the idea, I asked Karl Kjarsgaard and he had some suggestions. If according to plan it will be a Canadian Halifax but the nose art will have to fit the "canvas". I have the book about RCAF nose art, but sofar nothing "fitting" or interesting enough has been found. I will apply the nose art myself .

        The search continues.

                    Martin,

                    Length about 3 metres, width about 1,70 metres and height about 2 metres.
                    But now the sides are skinned it looks huge.

                      No, not enough room, but perhaps part of the navigators panel will be fitted but I haven't decided yet. The floor of the cockpit is at the same height as the navigators table would have been.

                                This is the rudder trimunit (ignore the aileron bit, these will be swapped soon). I had the knob and a drawing, and (yes, I make things as well) had made the channel sections and the stiffener. Bram Kemp said he would see what he could do with them. The result a week later is a fully functioning trim unit alsmost indistinguishable from an original (thanks to those drawings).
                                I'm a happy bunny.
