This is an incredibly touching story of your father, and I thank you for sharing it with us. Your collection is a legacy that I hope you will share with your family, and that your family will unreservedly share with you. You've shared it with me, and I'm grateful. Your fleet arrangements are simply a joy to behold, the care you invested in creating those arrangements to capture that sense of overwhelming density of ships, like that reaction we had to all the TIE Fighters in Return of the Jedi. A joy to see. Thank you.Those are there to incorporate the spirit of my Father into the collection (he loved the Military Hardware and the F-86 was his favorite fighter). My Dad's the one who got me into classic war, Horror and Science Fiction movies ( a love I've passed one to my kids). My Dad was the one who brought me to see "Star Wars" for the first time and later to "Star Trek : The Motion Picture" at Mann's Chinese in Hollywood. He loved the Creature from the Black Lagoon and his favorite movie was The Day the Earth Stood Still. With regards to the latter, my father's dying words to all the assembled family around his deathbed were "Klatu Barata Nicto" (which is how he and his best friend from childhood would end their written correspondences and telephone conversations to each other). At first I thought it was a message for my Uncle Kenny ( which I conveyed to him when informing him of my Father's death), but I later realized he said it to me because I was the only person present at his passing who would understand the sigfnifigance of it, of all the things he could of said to all of us, he said something only that I would understand (I think he was forced to be a grounded individual, but found freedom through realm of fantasy). He never saw my collection, but he's a big part of itMy kids tell me that when I die they're going to mix my ashes with plastic to make a Star Wars figure of me (a Jedi with tye dyed robes).
