    Can I suggest that you put a label on each of them. Some of them are interesting in particular the second one which if memory serves me correctly is one of the moulds used in the construction of the Port? side of the Mossie.
    I say this as a number of people on the site have experience in building aircraft. The Mossie construction method was close to unique and this unattractive lump was a significant part of the build process. It shows just how different it was.

    Thank you all. I am the kind of person that sticks my camera through a gap if i can. The picture of the dove coclpit was taken through a hole in the cockpit door barely larger than my lens.
