Talking New MLU Forum Member

Hi All,

It's about time that I introduced myself. I've known about the MLU site as well as the old forum for quite a while now.

I have been dreaming about CMPs since the middle nineties when I sold my 44 Willys MB because of a move. I have had the pleasure of metting/talking to a few of the members here over the past years. I have even been to the Oshawa show, and airshow at Hamilton.

I have been interested in military history because both my parents were in the US Army. WW2 is the period that holds the most interst for me.

I spent about 4 years helping restore WW2 aircraft for the Collings Foundation; it was great working with the planes and vets.

It looks like I will be the owner of a 42 F15 CMP GS in the near future. I am bursting with questions, but will try not to go wild with too many trivial posts.

Default Welcome

You've come to the right place, Jonnie!
And congratulations on the F15, which is not common on your continent (although is is here in Austraila).
I was in Hamilton recently and saw the C15A the CWH have and also took a good look at the aircraft restorations.
The Lancaster was undergoing it's annual and I was fortunate enough to watch them cycling the undercart.
We're standing by for your CMP questions.
