Breaking news. The misses insisted I place the HMCS Athabaskan on the mantle so all can see her when they enter our home.

Lou,
Looks absolutely magnificent, I imagine you will have lots of conversation with visitors initiated by that model.
I presume you have volunteered for KP in regard to dusting!

Happy New Year All,
Will.

Very nice indeed Lou, it certainly provides a treat and talking point for visitors.  I think I prefer prototype 2  poster with smaller gaps between the images. Best regards and Happy New Year, Paul J.

With regards to the poster.....although I think Gordon's Nieuport deserves special attention, I prefer the symmetry of poster number one .

Perhaps you could place the Nieuport in the centre with a gold frame as a well deserved feature?

The problem of symmetry is created by uploading different size photos. The model sound fill just 50% of the image so it can be cropped to a common size. I know that a close up filling the entire photo gives greater details but is makes it hard to fit in. I will see about highlighting the Newport.

 Lou,

 I echo Rays sentiments. Thank you for all the work you do.

 All the 2016 posters in my opinion fit the bill. Sorry if I'm a bit non committal on one in particular.

 With regards to the placing of HMCS Athabaskan at the entrance of your house. It looks marvelous and is a testament to your workmanship.

 Regards

 Gordon
