Photos from The Kent Battle of Britain Museum’s post









Following on from our, the Kent Battle of Britain Museum Trust at Hawkinge, earlier post this week, with the progress on the Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV cockpit, several people asked how the tail was progressing, so here is an update.

Our good friends at the Boulton Paul Association in Wolverhampton are working on the tail unit, on our behalf, and as you can see they are making amazing progress. Jack, Cyril, Terry, Harold, Bob and Mick are working on the rudder, elevators, tail plane, rudder post and tail plane tips.

Here are a few photographs of their amazing progress which should hopefully see the rudder and elevators being fabric’d in the not too distant future.

The quality of their work in these photographs speaks for itself and when they have finished this element of the restoration they will be moving on to the Blenheim Turret while the Museum Volunteers concentrate on the cockpit, wings, fuselage, undercarriage legs and engine mounts.

You can certainly see why the Boulton Paul Association received and richly deserved a Queens Award for Volunteering.

Many Many Thanks from Dave and all his fellow Volunteers and Supporters at the Kent Battle of Britain Museum Trust at Hawkinge to our good and dear friends at the Boulton Paul Association.

Please ‘like’ and ‘share’

Many Thanks…
