Ayup Rich...

Lovely cabinets. I need some of these for when I gut my House out. You might want to find room for another to put your Stirling and Vulcan in though !

An incredible amount of great work  :Clapping:
What type of plane is this one?

Hi Fea,
unfortunately the Vulcan and Stirling won't fit inside - at least not with the wings still attached!

Hi Paul,
that's the Dornier Do335 Pfeil, it's a Frog kit of the two seat nightfighter variant. I had the extra shelves cut from a local DIY store and hung them in place with metal hooks made from old coat hangers - it doubles the capacity very nicely!

Thanks for the info. The germans in WWII had a lot of fantasy with their aircraft design  :shock:
Great idea with the display cabinet.... :thumb:  :thumb:  :)
