I was going back through some old pictures and found this one I did a few years ago. It actually rotated when the wind blew. Nothing like some of the high quality toys others are making on here but thought I would share. Sorry for the poor quality picture…..

Love it! My group at GE Lynn, MA makes the engines. You know that thing is 50 years old and still going strong.

Yep, I was in Hawaii with the Deltas….the last of the Ds in the fleet.

A 46 shouldn’t be no problem…...just have to make whop whop sounds when putting together…...ha

Cool and fun project! Great carving and build on that one. Like every detail esp. the rotating blades.

THAT IS COOL! The shape is very realistic. I looked at lots of your stuff and it is great! So much military themed art. Were you military? I saw the goat, and wondered if you went to USNA. Two of my sons graduated from there.

I’ve been in the Navy a little over 24 years now and still going. I came up the rougher way, started out E-1 and wasn’t very good and fixing radars so they made me an officer. I usually stick with the military themed projects due to space and time. I have a lot of fun with all these projects.
