PAR concrete replica

  • S400: from Paul Shambroom via Facebook (2): <$
    • I commissioned this custom "Concrete" replica 14 years ago to honor our 29th wedding anniversary. I'm not in the Air Force and had nothing to do with SAFEGUARD, but had visited twice for a photographic project. I saw one of these models when touring the P.A.R. in 2006, I think it may have been for a retirement celebration or something. I expressed admiration and asked if it would be possible to have one made with a personalized inscription? They agreed for a very reasonable price, and a guy even met me in a Twin Cities suburb to deliver it! (I live in Minneapolis and he was visiting relatives.) My wife reminded me this morning that I give very strange gifts.
    • (It weighs) less than the real one. I'm guessing around 15 lbs?
