Had 2 friends leave so I wanted to say thanks, one a neighbor the other a co-worker.

The first has a cherry base with a white pine aircraft.

The other has a walnut base with a cherry aircraft.

The white pine/cherry cost $15 to make. The cherry/walnut cost the same.

Very nicely done. As a former crew chief on F-15’s I can say that this will be a cherished gift and memory for them.

Thanks guys, only took about 4 coats of aerosol lacquer. I told my buddy, “I can make your rotten 4×4” look shiny, but it doesn’t mean it will shine forever”.

I think the guy will be happy and thanks for your comments guys.

Well Done! I’m also a former F-15 Crew Chief, is the aircraft all one piece, or did you carve out the wings and stabs separately then attach them?

Hi derrick, the fuselage is one giant piece, each wing is separate and the vert stab is separate. I used a nail to create a hole on both attaching pieces then cut off the nail head and kept it in the hole with glue.

Love the design! I’m a current F-16 Avionics Tech and I’d love to make up some of these for guys as they retire/PCS. You do great work.
