Planes and armor...

Back to some aircraft, Don provides a series of types of several eras that are worth examining in the detail that befits his work.

One nice exhibit was of an NJ-1 on a base that was made to look like a period aircraft carrier deck (see pic 1). Similarly, was his exhibit of his Spitfire, named Darling Lil, for his spitfire of a wife (see previous entry…and pic 2). For the theme of the convention, “A is for” he chose an airplane; a Korean War era F-86 Sabre, on another deck/base (see pic 3)…

Finally, the collection of WWI armor should not be overlooked; a passion that he delved in for some time (see pic 4)…
