Nice one Paul, The pics of the 'chateau' under construction are as interesting as the aircraft.

Thanks Paul, I must admit though, I dont get the 'mermaids for Hienkels' bit at all. I think that must be a mistake. Steve

If I remember correctly from one of the 'making of' books that were issued at the time, the Spanish referred to the R-R Merlin engine as the 'Mermaid', which may account for it's reference accompanying the picture. I will look through my books later and see if I can find the actual sentence and let you know...........:D Regards, Keith
