Extremely beautifully done, Clave my friend. Thank you !! :)

Having stood next to a Mosquito under restoration, and having read Chas Bowyer's rather lengthy book on the Mosquito, I'm suitably impressed by your renderings here.

I'm very glad you retained the distinctions between the canopies, as many modern artists do not.
The same errors regarding canopies were made by illustrators in certain books during my teen years, which errors detracted heavily from the value of said books.

Warm Kind and Respectful Regards Clave my friend, Uyraell.

Thank you!

I did do a lot of digging around regarding canopies, but even more with engines and exhaust pipes - the PR XVI had later model Merlins with lots of extra scoops and vents, but even the early models had a couple of different exhaust set-ups and of course many had the cover too... I will do the BOAC one at some point as it was a pretty rare example of a 'combat airliner'... :)

I just joined up as research on RAF 627 Squadron brought me to this website and your posted Mosquito pictures. I was not able to open any of them but would sure appreciate being able to see the 627 Sqn Mark 4. A family friend did 3 tours as a navigator in bomber command, came home to Canada in late 43 to become an instructor and got "invited" back to become a Pathfinder navigator. He was KIA in November 44 returning from marking a raid on Trondheim, Norway - crashed in the Shetland Islands, low on fuel on a dark and stormy night. My email is available in my profile.

There was a bandwidth issue with my ISP, so I pretty much had to rebuild my entire site and change all the files from PNG to JPG - there are still threads to fix, but this one at least should show up properly now....
