This box set is the last of a series of 3. As with the other previous sets this one includes a piece of a 190 wreck (with original paint RLM76+2 red hand painted stripes) recovered in Latvia a few years ago. The piece has been traced back to a FW190 belonging to the famed JG54. Also inlcuded in the set is 5 MG17 ammo belt links also recovered near an airfield which was occupied by JG54 in World War 2. More details to the collector once the set has been purchased.
This one of a kind box set will be available for purchase at http://battlegroundstudio.storenvy.com/ Tuesday Oct. 1 at 8am. As with every artwork I create I poured all my passion in making this one set and as someone who understands the value in preserving history I made this set with the serious collector in mind, This will make a very unique addition to any WW2 collection.
Thanks to all of you collectors who encourage me to continue creating limited edition artworks. -Will
Going on sale Friday Oct. 4 at http://battlegroundstudio.storenvy.com/ is this exquisite framed set which has an original piece (with original winter paint still on it) from the wreck of Bf 109G-6 WNr.20792 of 4./JG 27, coded weiße 11 + –
Uffz. Hans Markgraf, WIA 11.Dec. 1943 in Luftkampf. That plane crashed right outside the village of Niebert, Holland. This information is reinforced in this fascinating article http://franckruffino.chez.com/My-Site/B-17%2042-30667.htm
The set also includes a fine reproduction of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross. Created for the serious collector, it is much more than a conversation piece, it’s a ” PIECE OF HISTORY”.
Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation was formed on 17 March 1943 as a merger of Consolidated Aircraft and Vultee Aircraft. Approached in 1939 to become a second manufacturer for the B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated instead developed the B-24 Liverator heavy bomber, which was arguably superior to the B-17. Several Years ago I purchased this piece of a B24 which I was told crashed in Alaska during WW2. No other details were given. After much consideration I decided to create artwork using the piece in the photo above. I will have more details soon. Stay tuned -Will
Just like the previous box set, this one also includes a piece of a JG54 FW190 recovered in 2009 in Latvia Not only does that piece still have a good amount of its original paint on it, attached to it is a 4 Prong plug with an outstanding looking Busch & Jaeger logo embossed on it. The set is completed with a “BATTLEGROUND STUDIO made” FW190 cowling featuring the JG54 crest. The first set was sold as soon as it was posted on the store. I believe this one will go just as fast. This Limited Edition shadow box set will be available for sale on Tuesday Sept. 10 at 8am. DON’T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!
