I was recently contacted by Peter Willes from the UK, who took a whole bunch of pictures of the original HB-474, a long time ago. The pictures and copyright on them are his, but he has kindly agreed to allow me to post them on this blog – in the hope that it might inspire other builders to build a model of the HB-474 as well. They will certainly help me to finalise the cockpit. Many thanks Peter!
At the time of writing this post, the original HB-474 is actually for sale in the UK. There are some helpful (but very low resolution) pictures on the website of the club where it’s offered for sale. This is the link – for whatever it’s worth (it may be taken off-line once the plane is sold).
