Thanks Neil.

Wikipedia tells me the 58 G is the unarmed ambulance version so, without the nose glazing and armament, its a cleaner-looking and peaceful machine. For 1934 it seems very advanced compared to Allied aircraft of the period - DF loops when ours didn't all have radios!

It's nice to see it unpainted and a builders model too. It looks light and the retractable u/c is a great piece of work.

You need to use a better font on your information sheet, Steve - it looked like a G :o

Hi Neil, fare play on the font on the display board at gaydon. But i think i used German gothic font.. :D . Don't really matter if it's a c or g version...as long as i put the c and g in the right place when i fly her.. :D :D :D
