Great work on a beautiful aircraft Gordon.  I suspect this has been already mentioned but the following link brings you to a lovely book full of 3-views with sections of most of the famous racers from the first 50 years of flight.

 Thanks Ken,

 I have a similar book in my Archives. Also have the two volumes of the Goodyear racers. Some good drawings in there too.

 Pondering getting the cheaper version of "Aircraft of Air racing's Golden Age "by Hirsch.

 I can keep adding to this project for a while yet.

 Still trying to match the background colour for the decals.

 Cheers

 Gordon

 Made some decals . i think i've got a reasonable background colour match. Bit of touching up required on canopy and edges of decals.

 The port registration will be replaced.

 Cheers

 Gordon
