Airspace Marker - F16 & P51

These airplanes are scaled down versions of my F-16 and P-51 rockers, without the rocking features. I added a dolley swivel for mounting to the kids fort or a fence post, etc., and pivoting with the wind. They can be customized for marking the “airspace” of a play area or yard. The P-51 has weathered a few Montana seasons as the plywood, paint and polyurethane shows. A good excuse to design and build something new.

Great looking Falcon and Mustang!

I’ve seen these two fly together in Heritage Flights at air shows, and they make a great formation!
