Surveying the damage

Greetings everyone...after pulling the plane out of the woods, I had to decide wether to keep it behind the barn or build a base for it and put it on the shelf. I'll probably put it back in the woods, but decided to build a base anyways. The base is made from a ceiling tile.

  4. It's those details that make that elevates this well beyond the norm. The weathering on the prop for instance, the branch laying across the cockpit and this tear and the tail wing. And the photography shows this off to great advantage.

  6. Certainly one of my favourite pieces to date. I just love the weary investigation by the troops and the oil slick! Just wonderful Captain.

  11. Thanks guys...and ladies for the comments...this plane was on my blog in Sept 2010 when it was new as a 1918 Fokker D, but as usual I can't leave things alone and it got transformed to use in my South Carolina Airforce.

    beautiful!
    The base is perfect.

    What are doing the confederates? Did they plan to rebuild it ?
    (crazy work, in my opinion!)
