I just wanted to share this rather exotic item, that I bought recently, but I haven't yet received it in the mail.
Like I said in the title, the piece of the wing is from a Soviet SB-2 bomber, that was shot down in the Winter War in Kuhmo by the Finnish troops. The plane was flying extremely low and Finns started to fire at it. Then the bomber opened it's bombing hatches and dropped it's payload extremely low, so it could gain more speed and altitude. The craters made by the bombs are still visible these days. The bomber crashed in a forest, killing it's whole 3-man crew. After Finns found the crashing site they buried the remains of the pilots and used this wing to mark the grave. The wing was removed after the war. The text reads ''Three Russian pilots.''
Sadly the red star on the wing was recolored with red paint during the 70's, but the black lines around it are original, so I would suspect most of the paint on the star is original too.
