This plane was a Christmas gift for my niece a couple of years ago. It is made of bloodwood and maple. I don’t remember the type of wood I used for the pilot. It looks like it might be teak. The wingspan is about 10 inches.

Sweet. Love the color contrast. I bet it was a big hit with the niece? Thanks for sharing.

Great Looking plane. We made about 140 of ones like yours this year. Our woodworking club made about 1300 toys this year. We give them to charities for them to distribute them.
