    Hi Zwerge,

    I believe the esteemed Mr Brown was referring to the thread title" Found on the Ground"

    He is a funny bugger

    Agreed it does look like an Oscar, any idea on where the picture was taken ?

    Cheers,

    Grant

    Hi,it`s a Ki.43-IIa in New Guinea in 1943, I understand the workings of the " funny bugger`s mind " I think along the same paths.
