DH Mosquito cockpit

January 4, 2016 · in Aviation · · 7 · 3.3K

There aren´t many surviving Mosquitos around these days. So what to do? Build your own of course. At least that is what Lincoln Nietschke did for his own museum in Greenock, South Australia. This is a wooden full scale model of a wooden airplane, partly built using original parts. No perspex canopy but at least the frames are there. Most of the instruments are real, but a few black boxes are fake. This particular Mossie has a full fuselage and mid wing section and is of the cannon armed version. There is also a section of the glass nosed version to be seen in the museum. Big model or not, I found it very exiting to pop my head into this one to have a look around and get a feeling of the size.
