Project Mosquito

 

Tony, with help from John is building a pair of Mosquito's built from Ivan's original design.The original  model was electric powered but these will by powered by DLE55cc engines. Some areas of the model have been redesigned to cope with the loads and vibration of the ic engines and the increased flying loads.

The Fuselages are both well under way and the wings have been built, glassed and fitted to the fuselages. The undercarriages have also been made.

Work is currently focused on the tail surfaces and the moulding of the cowlings.
