Used to see this regularly when visiting Benson and also wondered what happened to it when it was replaced by a fiberglass model.My patience was rewarded when I saw her up close crated at the RAF reserve collection store an awesome aircraft. What amazed me was the camera frame was wood.
These flew from Benson and nearby Model Farm (USAF)during the war relying on speed and altitude to survive as unarmed.

Mount Farm, not Model Farm?
