From the beginning, starting with C/N 1201,

Postby MrWidgeon » Tue May 05, 2009 6:36 am

and going through SCAN # 41.
To save Bryan some time and trouble I'm reposting this again (for the third time, uhh make this the 4th time), so ....... we begin again.
I'm going to show as many different Widgeons as I have.
This isn't all of the pictures I have collected, but a selection showing at least one picture of each airplane I have collected.
These have been collected from any and everywhere, some have been copyrighted and are used under the assumption that no gain will be made from using them.

1201 NX28633.

I'll be adding some new photos I've gotten since I originally did this on the old site.
If anyone has questions about the different engines or hull configurations, just ask.
There are quite a few variations.
