A while back Littlebuddy showed some examples of a custom display case that he made using his skills as a carpenter. I was very interested in his work and contacted him and we made and arrangement for a custom case for my wings.

This Thursday the case arrived from England safe and sound, well packed and ready to go.

Here are a few shots of the wings now at home in their new hangar. As I get time I will take closer pictures of each of the wings. I am in the process of cataloging the makers that I have and looking for those makers that I don't have. I have a fondness for 3 inch wings but as you will see in the pictures I also have a large assortment of 2 inch wings as well.

Thanks again Carl for your craftsmanship skills and I hope that the orders for more display cases come pouring in from the members here..

Carl,

I posted this elsewhere to boost publicity and hopefully a lot of orders will be coming your way..

I will be contacting you about another one after I get some information back about the research I am doing. I just sent away yesterday to see if the records are at NARA. If they have them and I can get them I will be requesting a similar display case. But will let you know.. Probably in a few months.. :)

I thank everyone for the kind comments..

All the credit is due to Carl...I just had some stuff laying around that fit into the case   ;D

The case is getting some decent exposure on another forum, some great comments about Carl's skills..

I hope that his inbox will be full of requests for custom cases..
