Ref. Plasma's windvane 'Tomb', aircraft are, obviously ideal subjects.

I have just completed a similar item to give to our neighbours, who have been absolutely splendid in doing shopping for us. I asked the lady of the house whether she preferred a windvane or a desk version and she couldn't decide - so I did both. Ideally, if the windvane version prevails, the sub-base should be removed and the attachment made directly.

I have been asked to make a wind vane with a specific aircraft as the pointer.

Cut a silhouette out and wondered if anyone could identify it to make sure I'm.in the ball park.

Please let me know what you think It is.

Plenty of activity today; just watched a Mustang fly over at about 1000 feet. And earlier an unidentified single seat fighter was doing aerobatics; possibly one of the US carrier based fighters - quite a throaty engine, nothing like a Merlin or Griffon.

Around 17:00 had a Spitfire/Hurricane pass well north of us heading east, it was quite high, obviously up for an air test.

A Lysander passed over at 13:05 heading towards Old Warden Museum, about four miles from me, so I assume it was theirs up for a test flight.
