This is a set of four airplanes that I just finished for my son’s room. They will hang from the ceiling and one will pull a banner over his crib. The series consists of a Boeing Stearman biplane, P-51 Mustang, A-10 Warthog, and Space Shuttle. I printed out side and top views to the scale I wanted and used those as templates. The wood combinations are maple with walnut and cherry with mahogany, finished with Arm-r-seal.
I’m glad my wife persuaded me to change from a series of all fighter jets because this is a nice diverse group with different character in each one. However, my oldest son did request a plane (I’ll probably do an F-16) and my daughter wants one too (it is half done—will be a purpleheart and yellowheart delta wing plane with the wings shaped likes hearts).
