    Lot of those seen around here. The ones with the single white stripe.
    Some real versions of the little plan as well. A couple small airport near by. The first airport in Wisconsin is very close.

    Which airport is that? I lived in Eau Claire for a short bit in 99-2000. Loved the place and people but life had other intentions for me. Grew up in aviation but all I care to afford is the RC stuff lol.

    It's about a mile east of Winchester on county highway II (Winchester Road). Winchester used to be on Hwy 45. I don't remember the name of it but there's a large stone monument with a plague. The runway runs up hill from that monument. It's just mowed grass. No light, just a small flag.
    There's another bigger modern one about 4 miles west of Neenah. On Breezewood Ln. Breenand Field.
    A lot of other little ones around. Some on lakes.
    Eau Claire is well known and liked. But I'm from the Green Bay area and spent '72-'06 in Milwaukee area.

    I've seen, from a distance, a biplane land there. I wanted to see it but they wouldn't let us go in.

    B75EEAED-A681-4CB6-9416-EB4D8814DFE4.jpeg Got all the major decals done. Have to do all the small safety labels now. These are good decals just work one decal at a time make sure you don’t let decals separate from paper backing in the water. Get two sets just in case

    hey guys got them on ebay CMR product get 2 sets these aren't like microscale do only 1 decal at a time do not leave in water more than a few seconds and if you leave in water to long they separate from the paper quick and when they curl you will never get them to un curl also in water make sure they are decal facing up,these are very good decals just different to work with

    How deep (and high) is the benchwork in front of that electrical breaker panel?

    Is it the main panel or a sub-panel?

    Maintaining access to that panel could be critical in case of a fire (could void an insurance claim), and could require removal of the benchwork prior to sale of the house.

    Were I am that kind of blockage is also illegal with heavy fines. Besides the unsafe conditions.

    Yep, sub-panels are more lenient, because they do not contain the main breaker/disconnect for the premises.
