a visit to the Town Museum at Mildenhall I saw pictures and a sample of the
fuselage fabric. I became interested and went home to find the various bits
of this 'toy'.
mended all the Dart holes and fabricated an undercarriage and cockpit. I
also glazed the cockpit. I got a coat of beautiful Post Box Red Gloss by
4. I am
pretty convinced that this was a good match to the real colour. I got some
decals that approximately matched the codes on the pictures. Then I
hand painted the rest of the markings.
The Grosvenor House was the name of the Hotel that sponsored this entry in a
England to Australia Air Race between the wars. De-Havilland built several
DH-88's for the race.
