There are few things more satisfying than seeing someone doing a great job on an esoteric subject. I'd missed this one but will be watching the final bits.

 

Just trying to recall where I've seen a full-size T8P-1: Calgary or Nanton maybe? 

This was taken in Calgary in 1999:

 

Calgary'99 007

 

 

Then a few years later it was in Edmonton:

 

AAM 111

 

I was through the Nanton museum in 2004 but there wasn't a Barkley-Grow there at that time. The Edmonton museum still had theirs as of my last visit this past August.

first time i looked at the "Bark n Growl" (that's what i heard was the nick mane) so closely, beautiful plane. This model sure looks good to, may have to get one.

I can't confirm the presence in photos of marks on top of the wing.

I did add the regs and name under the wing as per photos.

Any photos out there -of this very specific plane- showing marks on top of the wing?

I do have the decals for the upper surface of the wing, but want to be sure.

Thanks

There might be registration on top of the wings. Cdn aircaft did have it around that time, I don't know when it was changed. Look at pictures of planes from the same time period since it would have been some kind of regulation.

I would have thought the reg letters would be applied both on top and bottom. Everything else was at the time. And postwar. But a lovely build Moa!!

Going by this photo, I'd say there wasn't anything on the topside of the wings.

And going by the cars, that is about 1968 to 1970?

Same as I have, Chris, thus the reluctance to add the regs on top. Thanks for posting it for the other fellows.

Going by those pics and the time scale; proof enough.

Think you got your answer with the photo. Did a quick look and 'BQM is in the Hanger Flight  Museum now.
