Well, tough to hide where my inspiration came from tonight…ha. Seriously though I found plans to an aluminum can F-18 today but need to drink a few more Coke Zeros to have enough cans to make one. So an empty bottle in the garbage inspired this little jewel tonight. Anyway, I guess I’ll have to make a stand for it now or figure out how to hang it up…..it’s too much of a conversation piece to put it back where I found it tonight.

I showed my wife and she laughed and told me that was 30 minutes of my life I will never get back…....ha. Enjoy!

That’s great. I think that you should drink a whole case and then you could have an entire squad of Bud Light F/A-18s.

Now all you need is a wine bottle holder for the bottle to sit in…

At least you did not have to drink the beer. Neat plane.

Good thing it is a Light Bud. Otherwise, it would never get of the ground. :-)
