    Gil, do you know what happened to the Mosquito that was owned by the Imperial War museum that had had one of it's wings cut off, years ago, so that it could be displayed against a wall inside the main museum complex in Lambeth, London? There was talk of doing something with it some years ago but I don't recall what exactly. Thanks.

    Looks like a target tug with that yellow colour scheme. Somewhere I have part of a red canvas/cloth target that my father picked up in a field during WW2 after he watched it being shot down during target practice.

    The film about De Havilland Canadaicon construction of the Mosquito is quite interesting too:

    Jim,
    I would hazard a guess that 2 million would be about right with two real Merlins not some other make fitted. 7 Million is way way over the top.

    I would say the problem would be a supply of Merlin engines, maybe the 7 million is not far off, as they would have to contact the guy who was looking for the Spitfires in Burma see if he had any engines plus spares...
