It is painted as shown in a wartime picture of the 406 Squadron RCAF aircraft flown by Squadron Leader D.J. "Blackie" Williams DSO, DFC and his navigator C.J. Kirkpatrick on the nose of their personalized Mosquito.

The Mosquito panel was made at the Walter Lawrence factory at Sawbridgeworth.

At the end of WW2 panels were removed from the factory and ended up as wall panels in a local barn.

The structure is made from plywood faces and Ecuador balsa interior with reinforcement from spruce and bakelite . The brown edged inserts on the rear are for the fuel tank straps.

The panel has a stamp on the rear which says Internal Concession No. which means that this panel failed QC and was reworked with a concession number but It is found in the factory and was never fitted to an aircraft.

The panels were cut square to fit in the barn and only one edge has the original reinforcing and holes for bolting to the wing.

We have cleaned the panel back to clean wood and then added a thin cotton fabric layer with toughening dope to make it tight. Then we have applied several coats to the fabric of butyrate colored dope before painting in the Dark Green and Medium Sea Grey colours and applying the artwork. This is how the Mosquito was finished.

When completed we have added a matt topcoat to protect the art.

We have added two slotted hanging brackets securely to the rear.

The panel weighs 3.8 kg and measures 69.5 cm x 47 cm x 3cm.
