  1. Troy, looks really good! How did you get it onto a stand that could hold it? And where are you getting the badges for the bases? (I like the idea)
    Great idea to share your hobby and your stash with your friends.

    • Thanks Bernard! The base is simply a dowel rod inserted into an MDF base. (Walmart $3,00)
      The badges come from various places. Craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Pat Catans, etc. This particular one came from a 5 pack (1 sticker for each branch) set found in the automotive dept. at Walmart.

  2. Another nice piece of work, Troy….I may follow in your footsteps if I keep messin’ mine up! 🙁

  3. Beautiful aircraft well done


  4. Nice Troy hope they have a big desk to put it on.

  5. Definitely a different type of build – almost seems like more effort to get a canopy!

  6. Looks great hope the size of the desk is large enough.
