« Part 7: world domination one tiny tank at a time Part 8 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 9: the final piece, and they came two by two »

this is the F4 hellcat waiting for paint and propeller. I am not sure what the next project will be in this series but probably a jeep or duce and a half. I know these are not as cool and exact at some of the stuff posted on lumberjocks but they have been a learning experience every inch of the way. Mostly on what not to do but hey it all helps.

I think toys are cool and with a little attention to detail and the right tools you could be on to some cool toys for kids to play with. I think if your going to be shaping wood you may want to get into some nice files and rasps . I can tell you i sure love my Shinto rasps I own several of them and I use them on things that are carved to a shape like your little plane. I have to admit i thought you were wrong to call an f4 anything but phantom. Then i SAW YOU WERE SPORTING A PROP JOB oops and so it is very cool if you want finer detail in this series get a nice set of riflers files and a shinto rasp you will keep improving with the right tools for the job. I hope this helps you in some way Lance

Looks good to me..besides how do you think those other guys started? This is where you learn that woodworking is learning how to do something..usually on your own,at your own pace…making do with what you have. Then when you talk to other woodworkers you’ll find your finding out how others are doing it. Then one day it happens! Someone is asking you how to do it!

Ps. I’m still waiting…lol!

Jacob, Don’t downplay your talent! It may not be what you see others doing, but you’re making things that I know I couldn’t! Well done!
