Restoring Aircraft Carrier Model

Exactly 47 years ago on Oct 6th 1965 my father Negus (Michael Raymond Marcel Ransenberg RIP 1936-1947) built a model of FOCH Aircraft Carrier.

For many years the model was at the same apartment where we lived and in later years at my nephew’s house. The model housed in wood and glass aquarium with back mirror was kept reasonably, only few parts fell apart and most of the wood and glass stayed intact. To give it another 50-100 years I took the frame apart and rebuilt it using the same materials replacing only one broken side glass. The model itself needed some cleaning and regluing. It is now time to re shelf it for next generation to keep and remember.
