    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    It's easy to see that it's a replica now that it's pointed out but at first glance just from a pic it wasn't so easy to pick out.

    My first flight ever was in a Beech H-18. Lovely plane.

    The world gained another airworthy Bf109 only last month, when Mid West Aero in Danville, IL finished the long restoration to airworthy of Bf109G-6 Wr.Nr 410077 which had been recovered largely intact, from a freshwater lake in far north of Russiaicon way back in 1990, after crash landing on its frozen surface in early 1944 after being damaged by flak, when being operated by Stab IV/JG54.
    It made its first post restoration flight in the legendary hands of Steve Hinton a few weeks ago.
    Just the thing for putting round holes in square heads.
