Hi All, While on the http://www.facebook.com/The-Kent-Bat...p8hX8cRk--EmkU they posted the below news from the BPA......:applause: While the Volunteers were busy on site at the Kent Battle of Britain Museum Trust at Hawkinge, our good friends and partners in the restoration of the Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV, the Boulton Paul Association, made a massive step in the complete restoration of its tail section. Today Jack, Terry, Harold, Bob and Mike, of the Boulton Paul Association, carried out a trial assembly of the whole tail section at their base in Wolverhampton, and as can be seen in this fantastic photogra...phs attached. The photographs not only shows you the size of the tail assembly but also the quality of the work the BPA Volunteers have carried out on our behalf. Terry has confirmed that they have the poly fibre, poly tack and sealer ready to cover all the control surfaces within the next few weeks, which means we are just about on target to collect, fit and hopefully paint the tail section before we re-open to the public on Tuesday 2nd April 2019. Dave, Richard, Ed, Del and Tony (the Trustees) and all the Volunteers of the Kent Battle of Britain Museum Trust at Hawkinge would like to express our sincere thanks to all our good mates at the Boulton Paul Association for the amazing restoration of our tail unit. For further information on the Blenheim Restoration and the Museum in general, please visit our website: www.kbobm.org Please 'like', 'share' and 'comment' Many Thanks..

Well done to all the lads at the BP Association for producing yet another masterpiece of workmanship. Over the years they have produced some amazing pieces of workmanship whilst suffering many setbacks over places to perform there talents. Where are there workshops now?

Hi All, EB - I would think the best way of finding where the premises they are currently using would be to either contact the BPA via their web site below (Link) or to contact http://www.kbobm.org directly ? The only thing I could find in relation to the current status where older posts with no updated info other than the BPA web page under construction so I would assume that the BPA are currently still active but in a location that is obviously just temporary ? Here is the above mentioned web page:- http://boultonpaulaircraft.co.uk/home/ Geoff.
