Nice work Don,lovely drawing.I am very lucky to live 20 minutes from this beauty :)
This one has a very chequered history http://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2015-05-20/only-flying-ww2-bristol-blenheim-aircraft-soars-over-duxford/ .Restored to flight and crashed on one of it's first flights on a golf course ,another airframe built and that crashed a few years later and this is the restored version of that with a Mk1 nose.
Not to mention the engines are as rare as well,not many Mercury engines around.
