An updated Woodason Aircraft Models shop on Heston Airport in the Airwork facility - not certain of the date of this photo, probably late 1930s. The Empire Flying Boat, G-ADHL, is similar to the cut-away depicted in his 1943 book (built for the 1937 Paris Exhibition), yet this is not the same 1" scale model. Woodason had his shop on the airport from March 1945 to December 1949 - but information indicates that it was in the back of an Airwork hangar. Airwork Ltd. did not charge him rent.
The Nakajima Kikka ( "Orange Blossom"?) was Japan's first jet-powered aircraft. It was developed late in World War II and the first prototype had only flown once before the end of the conflict. It was also called Kōkoku Nigō Heiki, pin by Paolo Marzioli
One of the more popular military transport aircraft during the Second World War was developed by the Douglas Skytrain, also known as Dakota. It is considered to be the best aircraft that was used to transport military personnel.
