udidtoo - some restorations are very extensive,
meaning sometimes more than 50% of the original
structure has to be replaced, either by spares
from other remains, or new fabriaction of parts.
I think one of the famous Mosquito restorations,
for example, comprised essentially just the
fuselage of the original plane, some parts from
other planes, and a lot of new parts.

That Hampden lowe gun position looks like it
would be a bit draughty!

There's an exhibit in the australian war memorial on restoration - I think they've got a Wirraway wreck shown mostly salvaged, but beat up, and another exhibit on how they try to get salt water out of the stucture of salvaged gear. Certainly seems like a lot of work but their restorations are worth it.

Great photos of the restored hampden, too.

Looks great...the old Hampden deserves to be remembered. The British Dark Green color seems very off though. Too light and seems to have a bit of blue in it.
