A beauty. I used to have pulleys from this aircraft my Dad used to repair double hung window sash weight mechanisms. Very smooth.

Nice, those antenna wires look especially convincing.

Thanks jakko , I had to do a bit of googling to see if this aircraft would have had the wingtip wires and found out some interesting things like only half of the wingtip wires were aerial , there being an insulator halfway down and the bottom half was just plain wire
