    I wonder if this is the same project I came across while thumbing through a recent copy of one of the magazines devoted to warbird restoration?

    Also I have always wondered if one can restore a mossie permanently or does that wooden structure continue to require a lot of work to keep it sound?

    Moderation in most things.

      ..for care and feeding of a de Havilland Mosquito!

      a) do NOT store outside for any length of time!

      b) do not subject to excessive heat -particularly if the temperature cycled up and down over a large range.

      Ignoring both of these things will cause the plywood/balsa/plywood 'sandwich to delaminate

      For MORE details and discussion do not hesitate to look on our page
