The replica that Fred Murrin built was in the group. I spent about a half-hour in his hangar admiring his work and talking with him a few years ago. His replicas are meticulous, right down to making his own German-style turnbuckles for the bracing wires. He has built several replicas for Peter Jackson's collection in New Zealand. His hangar is in the town where my sister-in-law lives.
