Re: Dornier 17 Z (Henschel built) rudder identification

Dear ED North,

Thank you for the "classroom" about LW parts and labelling. My knowledge about those things is 0 and I do find fascinating to find real "Masters on the Subject" on this Forum, which can determine that a small wreck belonged to this or that machine, thus finding its fate and the origin of the piece or airplane.

It is, in my humble opinion a Re-engineering working process...and I always learn here at Toch Forum...

Sadly we do not find those pieces down here in South America....IT was one of the most beautiful labels I have found selling and surely the owner deserves it. Hope that he or she may be able to find more about this machine and its stories.

Again thank you for sharing your knowledge and enhancing those who are not familiar, like me, about this subject.

Most grafetul,
Adriano
