  1. Scott, Wonderful B-17E From the various sources on Trenchart, I suspect that this one may have had clear plexiglas disks and a prop shaft instead of props. If you ever need a set, it would not take ...
  2. Thanks, Always trying another way. Lately I have been going to the airport and setting up dioramas with the field expanse as the background. I will post one here shortly. Thanks Again, Toma
  3. Thanks. I meant add that the one-off signs on both sides of the trailer say, "Apple Cart Cartage, Fresh From The Orchard, Walla Walla, WA
  4. Thanks for the link, that is is a pretty close in design form.
  5. Thanks Scott, I will dig out the rest of the B-17 squadron sometime. The largest is a solid aluminum B-17 that is 1/72 scale sand casting. The smallest is an scale diecast recognition model from 1942...
  6. Thanks All. Note the the telegraph key down in front is from a B-17. In fact, it was standard on almost all US bombers. Like many items during the war economy, it was a surprise to find out who produc...
  7. Thanks, now it can thumb its nose at the others on display!
  8. It would be nice if a company would extrude styrofoam or other expanding foam over a filament in thin curly strands not unlike the wood strands of yore. Remember the scene in "A Christmas Story" when ...
  9. Let me weigh-in on this thread that has morphed into packing. My key area is restoring expensive metal airplane models that have VERY FRAGILE prop assemblies. Very difficult to arrive safe. Ebay noted...
  10. Thank-you!
  11. I would love to give the lecture on how to pack, especially for overseas travel. Internal box support and absolute item immobility are paramount to be successful. If there are any takers send me a no...
  12. I am in the process of restoring one of these and would like to know what the words say on the band around the globe. The airplane depicted is a Douglas DC-7 but the registration number is for an a...
  13. The Packard Merlin has had a 0 time overhaul as well :{)
  14. Yes, I do a few overhauls for others. In fact, I am overhauling a gentleman's 5 model collection currently. When I do sell one of these, it is usually on Ebay under my moniker 'ohmyflyguy'. It will no...
  15. There were a number of companies producing "airplane ashtrays". These include Allyn Sales, Pastushin, Riffe and others who produced these metal/chrome ashtrays. Full-scale aircraft manufacturers contr...
  16. This is a Marx Large DC-4 Pressed Steel Toy Airplane. Go to ebay and check out their guides ... http://reviews.ebay.com/Vintage-Large-Marx-DC-4-Pressed-Steel-Toy-Airplane?ugid=10000000017898424
  17. This may have been an airplane that was assembled incorrectly. If the wings were rotated 180 degrees on the yaw axis and the pitch axis, the end result has the similar outlines of the Bell XFM Airacud...
  18. If this is British, it is probably of the Douglas A-20 (Havoc) that the RAF, the 8th and 9th AAF's used in the ETO. Other than the long proboscis, its outlines are very close to the Havoc. Sheet bras...
