  1. Have you checked enginesandthings.com? Willem

  5. Hi Leyreynolds, I have looked up the Morane-Saulnier L in "French Aircraft of the First World War" by Davilla & Soltan. There are several photographs of the 'L' type, but unfortunately not the one flown by Roland Garros. Regards, Willem
  6. Nevertheless jaw-droppingly magnificent
  7. To be honest, I have been following this build since February 1917, and I feel I can no longer keep quiet. You do an stunning job! This, and the build of the engines are out of this world! I learned so much from both your build and your painting and airbrushing techniques. Thank you Krow!
  8. Plus the quantaties can't be correct since they are sold out for a long time.
  9. Does anyone know this and/or believe this: https://www.feelfrench.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=35_36_37_38_39&products_id=20532 Yes, I know, when it is almost to good to true, it usually is... Willem

    Sorry, I didn't know that. I suppose that means I can't post this message at all...
  11. Hello Ossington, thanks for that information.
  12. Thank you Ivor Ramsden and Vicarage Vee. I will post the photos on the Flypast Historic forum en see what turns up. Willem
  13. These are parts of (an) aircraft that was were salvaged of the coast of Ameland and Rotummerplaat, two Dutch islands in the Wadden sea. They are displayed in the open air near the Hotel Bernstorff on Schiermonnikoog. There are questions about the provenance of the propeller. Does anyone have a clue? The plaque on the tailplane reads: "On November the 8th 1942 a four-engined bomber crashed on the Rottumerplaat. This aircraft, a Handley Page Halifax was part of "Operation Gardening". The object was to lay minefields North of the Wadden Isles to hinder German shipping. All the crewmembers were killed in the crash.” The plaque on the propeller reads: “This propeller of an allied bomber was dredged up by a Zoutkamper fisherman above Ameland. Unfortunately it is unknown of what aircraft is, be we hope to be able to retrieve its provenance”
