Gents, all the photos are lovely but please, in the future, limit the subject of your compositions to US wings only . Thanks!

 

My apologies everyone for my inclusion of a few items that are outside the scope of the site... honestly, I didn't mean to offend anyone. It wont happen again.

 

John, here's a front/back shot of my FE wing; it's got a 180-degree pin, and a beautifully detailed radial engine seperately applied to the front. As always, comments are welcome on it.

I am bored prefixing everything I say with "I think" or "in my opinion".
Everything I say is my opinion; the only thing of which I am certain is that there is very little of which one can be certain.

It is interesting to note that when instituted in 1944 this wing badge was officially identified as "SuperFortress Flight Engineer" for the B-29 guys who had a specific crew position on those big birds!
