A large new sign in a prominent location is one way to increase public awareness of an ongoing Albury restoration project.
The airport hangar in which Uiver Memorial Community Trust is recreating its memorial DC-2 aircraft now has signage to show passers-by exactly where the work is taking place.
Trust chairman Pieter Mol thanked the anonymous person whose donation made the sign possible.
"It was a terrific gesture and to us it showed that there is most certainly very active and interested public support for the project," he said.
Ian Cossor designed the graphics while Hamblin Hire and D A signs also contributed.

Mr Mol said the hangar's previous signs had announced only that it was for sale.
"Now the building again has got a purpose, we're carrying out the restoration of the memorial DC-2 in there and we're looking now to transform that hangar into a living museum," he said.
In the past, community members might have wondered about the location of the restoration site.
"I think that is patently obvious now, given that it is such a clear visual from the road with passing traffic," the chairman said.
Volunteers meet at the hangar on Wednesdays and Saturdays to work on the plane, which commemorates Albury citizens' 1934 rescue of a Dutch airliner that made an emergency landing at the racecourse.
Mr Mol said more volunteers would always be welcomed, with the board particularly seeking people with skills in fundraising and finance.
