OK, a few...
I also restore antique Lionel postwar trains so I have the Hudson art given to me by a friend. Kind of why I went with the engineering drawing theme.
The Cobra and Hughes 300 profile pics and schematic are printouts from my original GMP drawings, just tidied up a bit in Photoshop. The large Cobra parts schematic was done by my wife who has a 36 inch printer at her work. The engineering drawings came from Marc's GMP site here..

The engineering drawings are in the Competitor section.

Lastly is a small tribute to my Father, who passed away a year ago. He was a Marine Helicopter Mechanic with HMX-1, (Marine One, '57-'59, under Eisenhower, the first President to use a helicopter). Pictured are the Sikorsky CH-34 heli they flew then, my dad and some uniform insignia, and a metal plate with the HMX-1 insignia my dad hand painted. If you look closely at the pic, you can see that plate attached to an actual Marine One Helicopter.

What's that pink stuff?...


What is that in the gallon jug, pink lemonade in case you get thirsty? I vaguely recall carrying some of that stuff to the flying field years ago.
