This is just great, Brian! thumbsup

Yes, this is your thread about your collection, and I am very glad you are sharing all the stuff in your collection with us here, whether it is anything to do with aviation or military. yo

Whilst searching have found a limited edition collection of McDonald Douglas sponsored, Roy Honisett painted, images dedicated to Australia’s Bicentenntial celebrated in 1988.  Entitled “A Nation born to Fly” it traces our proud contribution to aviation in both peace and war.  This would have been purchased during a visit to the Museum at Bankstown airport in 2004.  Hope you enjoy. smile2

Outer Folder …

 

Inside sleeve …

 

Explanitory booklet …

 

… and finally.

Not bad for about $110 in today’s money !

Gentle viewers … time for a little audience participation.

Being on a pension has its drawbacks.  However around Christmas time I receive a dividend on a modest shareholding. In the past two years that has been expended on important living matters. Happily this year, however, it can be considered for discretionary purposes.

Unsurprisingly I am thinking of providing work for the two framers in Ballina.  One each as a sort of a test. Each will also be given the task of re-glazing my damaged prints.

This is where you can help.  From my collection of unframed art shown earlier in this thread what would be your two choices to be framed?  Although not essential I also would welcome your comments behind your choices.

Hope you accept this invitation … I will be most grateful. Should provide some fascinating and thought-provoking reading if you care to contribute.

Now, over to you. smile2

My two choices would be:

Robert Taylor – Dambusters the Impossible Mission  

  • Looks great framed with a dark frame like you use

Philip West – Huba 972 at Mach 3

  • A very cool airplane and a great print

Appliance,

I think “Russian Roulette” by Robert Taylor and “Meteor Strike” by Frank Wootton would be good prints to frame. Amazing collection your have there, good to see you have purchased art from Barry Spicer and Steve Heyen, very good artists.

Thanks for your support and suggestions Simon and John.

Hope other viewers will not be bashful and contribute their thoughts too.  The more, the merrier.

Tough call among the unframed prints – so many great ones…

I would frame:

Robert Taylor “Return To Duxford”

WSP “When Prayers Are Answered”

Catch me on a different day and I might substitute John Shaw’s “Summer of ’42”, Gil Cohen’s “Eyes of the Eighth”, Mark P’s “Bismarck Into Battle”

Many thanks for your suggestions fuzzy.

I agree it is very easy to change one’s mind according to one’s mood.

One thing’s for sure I’m up for a hard decision later in the year.

It’s always great to see such an interesting thread reappear on the home page.  I’ve gone through it again in detail.  We have a fair amount of overlap on the Taylors, but not too much among the other prints, which I like because I get to see a lot of new images. 

I also posted my RT “Night Interceptor” in the companion print thread.  Just days ago I had a friend contact me eager to buy it.  I’m pretty attached to my RT companion prints, and didn’t want to sell.  Brian, I don’t know if you’re in the mood to sell, but PM me if you are and I’ll put you in touch with a motivated buyer!

Hello kind folks.

After posting this thread I fell once again into depression, only this time much worse. frown

I have also been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, medication to alleviate the shaking unfortunately conflicts with another.  So … I’m physically unable to rotate my framed artworks.  You will realise just how frustrating that is to a collector.

Thanks to Sunny and eHangar this is now the only means available through which I can, once again, enjoy my collection.  Moral … don’t grow old! happy

All the very best to the membership of eHangar.

Brian,

I’m very sorry to hear about your health challenges.  When it comes to medications, they all have side effects, and combining medications can get very complicated.  There is almost always more than one drug to treat a condition, and a different pairing may work much better for you.  Continue to press your doctor – or get a second opinion – to find medications that will work for you.

Perhaps there is a local volunteer organization, or one that exists to help people with Parkinsons, who can lend a helping hand.  I’ll bet you can find some help in taking care of the challenges you face, and may even be able to lend a few minutes to rotate some pictures for you!

Wishing you the best!

Kurt

Kurt please forgive my VERY tardy reply to your most helpful post.

After a number of false starts I have finally been able to secure an appointment with my cardiogist who simply confirmed what I already knew.  There is a conflict of medications.  Since then I have arranged an appointment, next March, to see a specialist neurologist who may be able to prescribe non-conflicting medication(s).  One of the downsides of living in a rural area of NSW is that specialist care is not readily available.

I have ascertained we do indeed have a Parkinson’s support group. It meets every two months and has 3 members.  I have yet to establish contact.  It is difficult for me,being by nature a private and self-reliant person,to accept that may not always be the case. Anyway another journey has commenced.  

Again Kurt many thanks for your kind thoughts and suggestions.  They are very much appreciated.

Brian,

Glad to hear you & your doctors are working toward a solution!

I haven’t been on eHangar for a while due to the site maintenance.  Hopefully things will be ship-shape from here on out.  We’re getting close to the annual original painting contest time!

Kurt

As I can’t afford Photobucket’s fees I figured it better to go out with a blaze of glory by bringing this thread front-and-centre where newer subscribers would have one last opportunity to view my collection before emaciation.

I, too, am near the end and it is only fitting that I thank Sunny and all the gang, for their friendship and knowledge sharing which so enriched my collecting life.

Salute’
