After he retired, he would spend winters down in AZ working on restoring them...and we have many many pictures of him with the Sentimental Journey. We decided to order nose art from the B-17 and place it over the scratch as a memorial to him....and as a pretty cool way to keep him with us as we travel. It is one of my favorite things on the AS...and as important to me as full propane tanks...;o). NONE of this would have happened if we had not scratched it up so bad....so lesson learned. Here's a photo of our "lemonade".
Very NICE....and meaningful to you as well. Now, because of the story and memorial, it is BETTER than new!
I still have my WWII combat veteran father with us. 94 and hanging in there. Next weekend we get to have pics with 4 generations of men in the family. He hasn't met his Great-grandson yet.
He was sure he wouldn't make it past March 1945 at Okinawa. It will be a special day.
