I was asked if I could make a holder for a tail flash for an outgoing commander – as the flash they wanted to use was made in the far East and had the wrong markings I offered to make them the flash as well as the holder…
I used my Carvewright to carve the airfoil shape into a 1/2 inch piece of MDF and then primed and painted it. I then used my silhouette cameo to cut out the vinyl for the top flag and the numbers. Next I made the ACC symbol by printing onto decal paper and putting it on (this is the stuff used on models- soak in water and put it on)
Before anyone points it out- the 2 tail numbers are what were requested- this Commander had his name on 2 aircraft and requested both be put on (I’m charging by the letter so I don’t mind :) )
I then cut a groove and drilled some holes into a scrap hunk of walnut and gave it a quick finish. After it cures I’ll attach the engraved plate (which I did not make)
Thanks for looking, and as always your comments are appreciated.
