Yikes! No artificial horizon on the 140 panel! Those were the days.... Thanks so much for posting, and welcome to WIX.

...Yet there's a GPS mount! That one had me scratching my head for a little bit.

Yes, I noted that too, although I was wondering if the mount were for something else. Date of photo needed.

I suspect what we're looking at are modern pics made into period-looking ads and I for one think they are great.

If that 140 panel ad is period, where did the semi modern (1970's) nav/comm stack come from? Should be a 2 crystal NARCO AVIGATOR shouldn't it?
And the CURTISS ROBIN looks like a super realistic painting given the 'fun house mirrors' reflections on the prop blades. :?

Hi Bill, thanks for bringing your work here. I've seen your work on POTN and am impressed how you can produce period pics/ads from your recent photo shoots.
