these are some of my fan planes I call them. I take vintage fans and turn them into airplanes. I use vintage parts like wallpaper straight edge , survey rods , old nordic skis and also use car parts on some of them. I also use musical instruments like clarinets on some of them. I always say they fly off the shelve when people buy them. All this and Heaven too.

Very ingenious idea. I’m sure they are great sellers. I’d love to have an “airplane” fan like that. I think I’m going to shamelessly steal your idea and see if I can find pieces and parts to make a fan for the office.

Very interesting.
I see wires on the one with auto parts do they all have working fans?

Very nice work. I like the design of the planes and I like that you have used a variety of familiar objects to make them.
