Angus&Coote Navigator

Recommended Posts

Patrick - This is the wing i discussed with you and Bob several days ago. You pointed out a couple of the die flaws including that small blob over the N in SYDNEY and those fine ridges on the right side of the wing. You encouraged me to buy it before you did :D Bob thought it was good as well.


I have looked at the lettering pretty closely with a lens now that i have it in hand. The top loop of the S in SIL is slightly larger than the bottom loop and the L is a bit lower than the S and the I. I've noticed both of these traits on wings that were considered good. Also the A in ANGUS is not clean and has some "blobs"

Perfect, quite rare, beautiful, unique and most excellent Angus & Coote navigator wing. By the way, don't just look over the N , look in between the D and the N. Very nice spot on the positioning of the L as well Jeff. Just an awesome wing. This is one of my favorite Angus & Coote wing versions. Extremely well done.
