Hey everyone!
I have recently opened up a shop on to sell my wooden airplane whirligigs. I have so much fun making them, and love learning the history behind each model I build. I have recently moved into the business of selling them, as i cannot possibly fit anymore in my yard!!! You’ll find that the prices I have chosen are very low, just enough to keep the cost of supplies from getting my wifes attention! so check them out here:

-- Rick,

I love the ww1 airplanes… I have built many of them over the years, but mine were not whirly-gigs, mostly giant scale radio control models…........ The Fokker DVII has to be my favorite…..... Did one here for the lumber jocks 2×4 competitions some time back. ”” :

Have never build an albatros, but they are real nice planes. would make a good whirly-gig. Good luck in your venture…..........

Those are really cool and I think you should bump up the price (at least $40 across the board)
