    Latest project out of my shop. Brand new build Replica 1917 Willem Morell airspeedindicators. These were used on most WWI German aircraft from 1916 on.There were basically two types, low speed for 2 seaters and bombers,and high speed for fighters. These are high speed models.

    These are the partsI did not make.







    And these are theparts I had help with. I made the casting patterns and finishedmachined them, had a local foundry do the actual pour. Dial faces Imade, painted, and did the artwork. Had a local Graphics shop do theprinting.

    This is the aftermath of Photobucket going from a free site to a pay site.

    Yep, they are holding all my pictures hostage until I pay up. Looking for another imaging site, any recommendations?

    People on another forum I frequent are using imgBB. Seems Photobucket got greedy and shot itself in the foot.

    Your pictures should be still accessible on photobucket, you just can't link to them unless you pay.
