The Oxford's official rollout is this morning. I will post photos tonight. It looks superb. It will be going on display in the front window of the Museum's new building along with the Airtrainer and Macchi ("The Trainers"). The Skyhawks are going to get a rest for a while.
Just beautiful. I got quite emotional seeing Don's and the AFM's photos last night, it just look so good. What a brilliant restoration, total kudos and Well Done to everyone involved. I can't wait to get down there and see it in person. It's just fantastic to have an Oxford on public display in New Zealand.
On the Key Publishing Forum our own ErrolC pointed out that the Museum has their finishing instructions for the Oxford available for download. I now have a full-colour copy printed at work to be used to finish my model one.
Now, who's going to tackle a flying one?

Here's a great photo of the NZ252:
