Interesting article about the DH Mosquito

Post  KariFS on Sun Jan 15, 2017 5:13 am

An article about the "Wooden Wonder". Pretty impressive and interesting IMO, especially the parts about the structure.

http://migrate.legendsintheirowntime.com/LiTOT/Mosquito/Mosquito_draft.pdf

EDIT: The PDF is a bit slow to open (perhaps a sudden peak in traffic or something), here's a link to an html page with about the same text content:

http://migrate.legendsintheirowntime.com/LiTOT/Mosquito/Mosquito_Av_4405-06_DA.html

In the end of that page there is a link to the PDF file. The PDF is a scan of the original magazine article from 1944 and has more pictures.

Edit add- Ha Kari and Kim, you just cost me a happy forty nine bucks (shipped).  It should look nice sporting a couple of my Enya .09/.15's.

PS - Thanks for those links Kari. Much more complicated laminate than I thought. The Spruce Mosquito of Gooses.
