I’m trying to track down photos on the wireless transmitter and wind-driven generator powering it, as used on the kiwi Bristol F.2B, and am hoping the experts here can offer some assistance.
The only photograph I can find of the generator is mounted on the panel beneath the gunner’s cockpit in this photo, and not much detail can be seen: i.imgur.com/ql2N2Ad.jpg
Can anyone point me in the direction of better photos and/or more information on either generator or wireless? This would be for a future scale model modification. I don’t know if other aircraft used these, either in NZPAF service or during WWI.
Yes please Dave, anything you think would be helpful. Hope you don't mine my uploading the photo separately, I saved all the kiwi F2B photos I could find online and in my books into a private online album so that I have them in one place and lost track of the source of time photos.
I noticed as well that the Bristol in the photo appears to have a bulged belly under the cockpit, also something I've not seen before. Am waiting for the books from Windsock to arrive to see what I can figure out on that detail.
