DH 80 Puss Moth information


Recommended Posts

I am building a 1/4 scale rc DH 80 Puss Moth and require photos of the interior cockpit, controls, dash, levers, knobs, rudder bars etc etc.

I have searched the web and have not hit on anything useful except a very expensive book.

Where would I go to to find this information please?

Have you tried googling de Havilland DH80 Puss Moth interior? Look at "Images". You should find a period shot of the instrument panel plus other useful stuff. Try other combinations of search phrase and you might come across something.

I have wondered about this book.

Some of the prices are unbelievable.

If I can get it for £25 I will.

It will cost me that in postage to Australia but I am game for that.

Where have you seen it for this price?

Yes I have tried that but very few head on images of the dash, all the controls and what they do.

When I model something I must know what it does .

The plan is to copy the images of instruments for example and print them to correct size in order to fit them in a 1/4 scale Puss Moth.

No images of the seats, luggage racks etc seen on the internet.

How on earth did modellers get their sources of info in the days before internet?.

Yes..I was alive then too!! Ha ha.

I may have to raid the wallet and buy the book " Moths in Detail" by Stuart Mackay.

I borrowed the book in an inter-library loan as i couldn't find a copy to buy at the time.

I forgot about libraries.

Good idea!
