Beautifull airplane, if I remember well a Belgian friend of mine that I used to fly with called Wim Reynders became world champion in RC scale model airplanes with a Wooden Wonder as they nicknamed these aircarft. Did'nt know this is the only one flying. Nice picture of your father in law with the great Tim Wallis, this reminds me of another WW2 hero I did shake hands with personally namely Douglas Bader, in Cornwall England that was. I can still here the 'click' of his legs when he walked about. That Mossie is a great achievement. Well done you New Zealand lads ! I do live close to the original Zeeland border.
