Enjoy vintage cars and planes with Ian

My passion has always been old cars and old airplanes. I have restored 8 Model A Fords and since 2006 have built full-size static replicas of a 1916 Sopwith Camel (Snoopy's plane); a 1918 Fokker DR 1 (Red Baron's plane) ; a 1944 Spitfire MK IX; the Spitfire's rival, a 1944 Messerschmitt. ME 109G in Adoph Galland's colors; a Sherman Tank; Willies Jeeps; a U-Boat in the pond and a Hawker Hurricane. All the planes are constructed mostly from recycled materials. It's ironic that there is a Model A Ford wheel welded in the nose of all my planes.

I chose to build the Sopwith Camel to commemorate " The Year of the Veteran" in 2005. I enjoyed the project so much that I decided to build the Red Baron's plane, the Fokker DR1. My favorite plane is the Sptifire MX IX.

I am currently fabricating the front end of a 1911 Pacific type steam locomotive. I have the tracks finished. Soon we will be, trains, planes and automobiles.

I completed the 1944 Messerschmitt ME 109 G in Adolf Galland's colors in May, 2011. It took 14 months to complete as I missed 4 months working on it. I have placed a manequin dressed like Adlof Galland, smoking his cigar at the controls.
