Got this pattern from Scroll Saw workshop site it is/was a toy on his site I made about 5 of these , but used different kinds of wood, in this case ceder for the wings and body, poplar wood for the tail, propeller was made out of walnut as well as the wheels, the walnut was goung to be a piece of firewood I just went out grabbed the best log I could find and cut it down on the table saw, turned the nose cone on the lathe, and mounted it on a wood stand with brass wire to simulate flight…

Nice model! I fly electric RC Tiger Moth’s. I wonder if the TM would look as nice in wood?

I really like this and I wish that you had multiple views of it so I could see a little more detail. Nice job. Congratulations.
