the hunt is fun. the acquisition is fun, the receiving of item is fun, the displaying and viewing of item is fun... getting the credit card bill... not so much fun.Ed
Nice looking display, you're rapidly developing your own little museum there...
There's a video on You Tube of a British guy who was given a original WW II Spitfire rivet for his birthday 40 years or more ago.Just need a B-17
That’s insane!!!! So cool!There's a video on You Tube of a British guy who was given a original WW II Spitfire rivet for his birthday 40 years or more ago.
From that rivet he started to collect original Spitfire parts or have the ones not available any longer produced. It took him all that time to obtain all the parts but today he owns a working, flying Spitfire.....now he cant fly..but that's not point.... the moral is never give up hope
thats amazing! I'm following the progress of Hanger Thirteen in Asheville, NC blog and FB posts and they are going to extremes to find and acquire the most smallest of details for their B-17 restoration. their research is exhaustive and painstaking but once done it will be the single most perfectly accurate restoration since the Memphis Belle. its amazing how much work goes into it so I can't imagine building piece by piece a working spitfire!Check it out
