Although I shouldn't - I'm operating from memory here. Wasn't the
radiator underneath the nose? About mid-way between the front of the
fuselage and the forward portion of the undercarriage? Or was it
directly in line with the undercarriage? Wasn't it "retractable" as
well - moveable in and out of the fuselage depending on how much
"radiation" was needed?

Pulling up my database, I see the following Windsock references:
Vol 3 No 3, Vol 3 No 4, Vol 5 No 1, Vol 8 No 2 (which contains the
actual review as done by Rimmel) and Vol 10 No 4 (which also contains
a review of the re-release).

Scale Models had a few instances of DH9's, but not any dealing
specific with the Blue Rider conversion. Dec 1989 and - more
importantly - Oct 1975. The Oct 1975 issue actually has someone
converting an Airfix DH4 into a DH9, basically from "scratch" (versus
using a conversion "kit").
