Lance says:

"Wonderfully evocative, unrestored plane in original and very good condition. Gray-painted plywood reveals grain pattern clearly, and rib tapes are very pronounced by the darkening effect of the old (dope?) Note many cutouts in fuselage undersurface, and brass magneto switches outboard of cockpits. Starboard wing root uncovered for visibility. Undercarriage struts gray steel. Control horns varnished wood.."

Mark Miller sent in the following phtos taken by David Fleming.
David's comments: I noticed that in the real aircraft section, what is labelled as a DH9A is in fact the DH9. Enclosed and in the following mail are 6 shots of the RAF Museum's superb DH9A restoration (Based on the fuselage from the Berlin Museum which was obtained from Poland in the 60s).
