This wooden toy airplane has been in my family for decades and was in really bad shape and needed refinishing so I sanded it throughly and repaired the wings that were loose. The rudder and propeller were missing so I made new ones. Finally I applied a few layers of bright red paint and decorated the plane with white stripes.

Very good restoration job on the plane.
isn’t that the beauty of wooden toys, you can repair or remodel them, well done.
Cheers, crowie

Looks very similar to a Culver V or Culver Cadet! Very nice restoration!

-- I make sawdust. I think thats a fair assessment of my finished products!
