    sales - antique British car parts
    Location:

    I am a model builder in 1/72 so I can have big planes with the small, found this group while searching for info on Corsair wing folding. I'm currently working on a F4U-1 Corsair, P-40E Warhawk, P-51D Mustang, Spitfire Mk 1A, Halifax B.III, and a T-47 Snowspeeder. I also have steam-era trains in 1/87 centered around Delaware Hudson and Sandy River Rangeley Lakes, and 1/24 1/25 cars. As well, I have about a dozen and a half cars from 1920 to 1971, I'm often working on the daily driver Studebakers and El Camino, and I sell antique British car parts to pay for all the toys. I'm married 40 years next month (and still friends!). I'm constantly amazed and thrilled by all the great people and all the information they share in forums like this one that I have just found. Thank you.
