Insignia, made of airplane fabric cover, cut from a World War 1 American Biplane, in the shape of a star.Brought back home by Alfred F. Schlembach, aerial gunnery instructor with the 87th Aero Squadron. Original early fabric of this size is EXTREMELY rare as it usually burned up or rotted away over time.

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items.
Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
