    Another project: Retirement Wall Plaque

    I found another project to put on my bucket list. Saw this on the LJ forum this morning. My son will be retiring in the next couple years so I sent a picture of it to him. He says he will have the helmet and mask for me. I will also add the gold wings and rank insignia of his rank when he retires. I think it might look better with the sum shield closed. And it might be nice if there was a place for all his ribbons, but then that might be too much stuff on it and not look good. I have a while to think about it and plan for it.

    Looks like a very meaningful project. Something tells me this one may soon surface to the top of the bucket.

    That's really nice looking Paul. I wouldn't be surprised if you get requests for more of them from time to time.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
