This is a silhouette of an f-18 hornet, and it’s about 35” tall nose to tail. It’s hard maple, walnut and sepele. I got the idea from a picture I saw online and made it happen! It should hang nicely in my living room on the wall. Any questions, please ask!

Former USAF F-15 Eagle pilot salutes you for your patriotism.

The first F-18 I ever saw was a Canadian Forces bird out of Soelingen Air Base, Germany. We met nose-to-nose in a dedicated low altitude training area along the Black Forest. When we passed, we each turned into the other. I think I said something like, “Uh oh!” when I saw his turn capability.

As we used to say, Check Six!

I know you posted this a while ago… but I just stumbled upon it, and it was in fact the most American thing that I’ve seen all day.
