                     For some reason, the picture does not show in my previous mail. I probably forgot to upload it

Well I never, I thoughtI I had looked at these in detail.  Had not noticed what you have pointed out, yes there are two different shaped central webs, curved and straight as you have pointed out.

I have three examples of the twin webed version and each carry the the curved central web.

I have ten examples of the single central web and all are straight.

Another note, all of the rear webs are curved and not straight.

Have also noticed another slight difference, The single web has a hollow windscreen whereas the twin webed models have a solid windscreen. I do however have one model with a single web and the solid windscreen.

Regarding the thickness of the web they look the same but have not mesured accuratlley they are tappered and the curved ones are deeper they rise at the edges to almost the level of the side body, with the tappering continuing perhaps  little thinner at the top edge.

All my models with rear web have the solid windscreen.

Will try and get better photographs, I wonder were that fits into the dates.

Will also remove the string.

David.
