    Yesterday I met up with artist Joseph Green to donate some items to be added to the back of a painting that he is doing for the PPCLI 100th anniversary. While there he decided to present me with a small piece of metal that apparently was used in the CF-105 Arrow project. I will let the COA explain the rest of the story. I'm curious what others think about this.

    You should have bought this Steve, you could start a 1:1 scale model!!
    But where to park it when done?

    I'm not sure the seller has proven that those parts are from the Arrow. Avro (and other companies) made parts for many different aircraft and I'm certain that many of the parts used on the Arrow would have also been used with other aircraft types. They may be Arrow specific but I'm not convinced by what he shows. It only proves that similar parts were also used on the Arrow.
