My Brother’s Christmas Presents

My brother  came  to  see me two weeks  ago. He  asked  for  something  strange…

A model airplane  in my collection!

I told  him  to pick any build  he wanted. He could  have  chosen  this  one…

 Instead he wanted the Me 109 G that I had built in the 70s.

I told him he could also have the Me 262 that I had built in the early 80s.

He wanted to take them right away, but I told him I wanted to put them on a board and glue them so nobody would start holding them in their hands and break them…

For this purpose  I will be using an old melamine veneer board.

So many good old memories from the past…

I know it’s going to be perfect!
