Can do!  Consider it a Christmas present! 

It'll give me something to do while I wait for the 259e I just brought in from the Chugger Barn to come up to room temperature.  It was cold out there!

Man!  I hope that P-47 knows the train is on OUR side!  The Thunderbolts raised hell with the panzers in 1944!

PS:  Lady Firestorm wants to know if the teacups on the wall are Royal Albert!

Neat.  Something I'll have to keep in mind for the next time I set up a layout at a show.  Have to watch the flight path to make sure the viewing public does not get buzzed, though.

Yes I was really careful to check for clearance before screwing it down to the plywood ,wouldn't do to hit that wall sconce and shear off the prop blades!

I remember seeing something similar in a Lionel catalog a while back.  Found the reference tonight, the 6-24108 WW2 airplane accessory is very similar.  I think it has a P51 and a Zero "dog fighting".  I've never seen one, though.
