    Hi All,

    Thought I'd introduce myself as well. I'm Chris (Goofy), 36, originally Dutch, but live in Lincolnshire (Bomber County) England these days, a stone-throw away from the old RAF Waltham airfield. My main interest is WW2 RAF memorabilia that I have been collecting for quite a while. I am currently building a Lancaster Navigators compartment. For a living I fly for a Dutch Airline, on the A330 these days (lovely aircraft...does tend to lose its tail now and then....)..

    Attached some pictures of my collection...and a pic of the equipment that will go into the Lanc Nav project....

    Welcome to the forum. With that collection of uniforms, you and Adler will get along just fine. He collects uniforms too.
    He should be along to welcome you soon.

    G'day Chris welcome to the forum, that’s some collection you have there and do I see the odd model aircraft. ian lanc may want to have a chat with you, he's just picked up an old radio receiver from a Lancaster for his birthday.

    Hi Chris, and welcome form 'up North'! One heck of a collection you have there. The only bits I have are a Lanc bomb selector panel, and a piece of timber from the floor of the JU88, now being restored by Guttorm, one of the members in Norway.

    Very nice collection. I have a rather nice collection as well, but I specialize in German uniforms and artifacts(and not just Luftwaffe, but all branches). As soon as my house is built, I want to have a room similar for displaying my collection.
