    Great Karl! I find all this early electronic warfare and radar a fascinating part of WWII history. Should be a very interesting project Karl.

    Yeah, me too, just got to nail down some sqn codes, which is proving difficult as few if no pictures exist of that time period.
    Hoping the two books i have coming might throw me a clue !

    Very cool subject! It looks like we'll have quite a selection of twin engine night fighters!

    Very nice! Looks like this one has a camo/black bottom scheme, which is more interesting than all-black.
