The plan for this
version of our Club display was to build a scaled-down version of a
P51 Mustang bomber used in WWII, flying out of the ground, in the
middle of the display.
One again we
utilized two build sites, one in the North and one in the South.
This became truly necessary, due to the sheer size of the plane
fuselage and the wings.
The intent was to
make it quite realistic, including camouflage paint, and a turning
prop. The builds came together very well, and everything
worked as it should, on setup day.
With the ideas of
our Club members and their talents, along with support from the
business community, we put together another great Club Display. We won
First Place in Best Club Display
this year again.
The Club member cars
once again helped make this Club Display a success. The cars
displayed included a 1966 Shelby GT350-H Tribute car, a 1967
convertible, a 1968 GT
fastback, a 1969 Shelby GT350 Fastback, a 1970 Mach I, and a
nearly-new (and already modified) 2015 GT Coupe.
There also several
other fine Fords at the World of Wheels, besides the ones in our
A very big "Thank
you" to the Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, for allowing
us to use one of their Merlin engines in our display. That really
helped make the display what it was. As a postscript to this
story, our version of the P51 has now landed at the Museum, and is
to be used as part of their display. That is also quite the treat.
Hope you enjoy the
cars and the display.
