You need to read the 'Biggles' series of books, Odysseus1980. In one of those he is flying around Egypt between the wars, supported by two Bombay aircraft.

Those books may be aimed at the 'teenager' and I read them at that age, but they taught me a lot about the aircraft of WW1 and WW2, and how they were serviced. Lots of different aircraft were used from Percivals by Biggles boss, Biggles flew SE5's and Camel's, Hurricanes and Spitfires, Mosquitos and just about anything else with wings. The other great source for learning about aircraft were the Commando Comics. For young impressionable kids they were great fun, and we would see Me109's and Fw190's fighting anywhere in Europe. It was a Commando Comic that I first came across and fell in love with the Westland Whirlwind fighter, those sleek lines were just marvellous with a set of cannons in the nose.
I've read Biggles since I was about 6 :). Admittedly, my Dad actually read them to me, but I read them myself from being about 7 or 8. I picked one (Biggles Goes to War) up again recently (found it in my stuff, and read the entire thing whilst installing Windows 10) and found it pretty nostalgic. Along with recent reading into Eastern Bloc Aircraft my reading of Biggles makes up the vast majority of my aircraft knowledge.

The Bristol Bombay, a bomber without a bomb bay! (ok, I'll grab my hat...!)

Great work, but I have one small nitpick. The RAF roundels look wrong, the red centres should be bigger, the rings are equal thickness. This is only a small nitpick (I admit I hate trying to draw round things in pixels!)

Thanks for reporting it. I'm fixing it right now.

EDIT: Reuploaded, check it now again, please.

It's crude. (bomb aimer/navigator window, engine intakes, representation of the shapes of the elements on the upper side of the wing...)
