    The operational one's were quite common Rene.They were the PR marks eg PR.40 was one of two photo recon versions we built .Of our 212 builds 23 were PR's.A reasonable ratio
    I am pretty sure the first operational Mozzies were PR versions.With no armament they could out run most German fighters of 1942-43.

    Here's another one that has just arrived for a few repairs. Don't know much about it yet but I think it's from the U.K.

    Some fine Robert Taylor's Sickgrenade.
    This is not very impressive I know but I made up a set of aviation based frames by using the better quality cover Taylor type images from warbird magazines many year's ago.I have a few survivors and this mozzie is one of them.Sad but effective.Poor mans originals.
    Don't tell Robert please.

    This is Leavesden-built TIII TV959 which for many years adorned one wall of the Imperial War Museum in London ( with one wing sawn off ). It then went to The Fighter Colelction at Duxford where it sat around in bits before being packed into a container at North Weald airfield before 'disappearing' from the Warbird scene,

    Good to see it's re-emerged.
