  1. The 1st Lt. bar has an eagle embossed on the back and the gold one has FP in a diamond and Pat. Apr 1910 on the back side. Both are pin backed devices. The small size of the silver one was what had me puzzled. I am not as up on all this as most of you are. Thanks for the help in the ID of them. Mike
  2. HMMMM, That makes sense, This might have been My Great Uncle's then. He was a Lieutenant in Co. B 148th Inf. before transferring into the Marines and becoming a pilot. Thanks! Mike
  3. Hope this is the right place for this. My Mom passed away in January. After all the ladies in the family went through her jewelry I took the remaining stuff to sell. In one of the boxes I found these two items. They look like some sort of rank bars. The smaller one is silver the long thin one I think is gold plated. Help needed to identify.
  4. I carved the originals from plexiglass then detailed them in styrene . These parts were then molded and recast as model kits in urethane resin. I made around 30 different ones at one time. I have since sold all of the masters and molds to Flagship models in Oklahoma.
  5. First is the C.S.S. Manassas. She predated the Virginia by a few months? Was used in the battle for New Orleans and scuttled. The Manassas was a converted tug boat armed with a bow ram and on cannon that was all but impossible to reload after the first shot. The other is the C.S.S. Fredericksburg. Part of the Charleston Squadron.
  6. This model was almost identical to your post. It had a revetment but I removed it to make molds of it . Many customers were asking for them to use on their models.
  7. Built as a State Side advanced trainer during the latter part of WW-I. Many went on to star in the movies like Dawn Patrol and Wings. From one account I have read they were a handful to master and fly. The model is a vacuformed kit by Wings 48 built around 30 years ago.
  8. This little model is a resin kit that I produce. To those unfamiliar, the device on the top wing was used to hook onto a trapeze device beneath one of the airships, Akron or Macon and be hoisted into the hanger.
  9. This model was built over 30 years ago using the Aurora Nieuport 11 kit. I grew up interested in WW-I aviation and loved the Lafayette Escadrille story and it's somewhat romanticised history. My model is built to represent a Texan Clyde Balsley. He had a rather lack luster career with the unit. He was seriously wounded and spent most of the remainder of the war in hospital.
  10. This is the old Monogram kit from the 1980s. Built pretty much straight out of the box. Only exception is the seat belts and fod screens from Eduard.
  11. Did you buy someone's collection? The old box art sure brings back fond childhood memories. I am currently negotiating on a very large model/book collection . I hope to pick it up soon. Thanks for you post.
  12. This is the C.S.S. Chicora and Savannah. This was a commission project in 1/192 scale( 1/16" =1') for the Confederate Naval Museum in Columbus Georgia. It was at one time on Display there. But after they relocated and changed the name to be PC I am not sure it still is. The ship at anchor is the Savannah. This diorama was based on a war time pencil sketch . Location was Charleston Harbor.
  13. This is a commission project I did a few years ago. All but the bald figure are from a set produced under the old Bugle and Guidon label in white metal. I think they were first released in the late 1970s
  14. Though I would love to collect uniforms weapons etc. Most are just too rich for me. When I go to a gun show I look for old photos and or albums and postcards. Here are three from WW-I in my collection The studio photo of the young man who served in the Medical Corps. I also got his color discs and his WW-I Victory medal still in the box with a France clasp . The other two are WW-I postcards.
