  1. Thanks for all your messages, with Gliderborne we try to share histories more as possible of Glider pilots. Take nice pictures of some items is the first step of our virtual museum before do a real museum. (maybe in many many years but it’s the aim). If I understood correctly, I use Patafix Glue Pads Sticks for hold them.

  6. Hi , For our future exhibits around our glider or parts of our glider Waco CG-4A, we start collection of glider pilot equipment. Of course Glider wings badges are present. Like for our project, we enjoy more to have a poor condition item with an history than an New Old Stock. After war made or copies are interesting if they tell an story too. Wings whose pilot is known: Edgar Eugene LLEWELLYN Killed in Line of Duty Jun 7, 1943 3" - Meyer, Sterling - Pin Back William David WILLIAMS - ? / Nov 9, 2000 3 " - Sterling

  8. Hello, I don't understand, all A&G hallmarked wings are counterfeit ? I start a glider wings collection, mainly for the name of the first owner and his history. But collect original variants is nice, as well copies. Just want to know the true about each piece for share correctly informations. I bought this A&G to a professional (and friend) who I know since many years. So I need to put this wings in the counterfeit wings box ? ( "&" on the counterfeit wings is vertically set to perfection)
