The Brian Nicholls Hampden Restoration Project

The Brian Nicholls Hampden restoration project is a long term project for the team.  Work is slow due to the large numbers of parts to be rebuilt from plans, many of which no longer exist.  The Hampden being rebuilt is AE436, see its history here.

As you can see from the photographs a large section of fuselage is currently under construction enabling you to see the design and makeup of a Handley Page Hampden.  All of the formers and stringers are being rebuilt to original specification with the view to rebuilding the aircraft to a complete static display standard. Handley Page Hampden Restoration Team
