Kinda nifty…

How did you shape it? Is it all carved by hand?

Kind of plane! chuckle That’s a lot of rasping and sanding but it does look very nice!

How did you add the detail lines?
How many other planes have you made?

I tell ya oldnovice this had made it to my Isle of misfit toys and it fought me every inch after I pulled it off the isle. I use a paint pin for the lines, and I have made two others a B-24 Mitchell (my fav) a F-4 hell cat and this one they are redneck antique style if I do say so myself. Although this one is just redneck. I may remake it as I am not pleased.

Looks great. And here’s your familiarization film:

As a WW11 buff I really admire your plane. Maybe you can make some more vintage aircraft. I also liked your toy tank. great painting stand by the way! Chris

I just have to ask, the B-25 Mitchell, or the B-24 Liberator? Also, did you mean the F-4 Phantom, the F4F Wildcat, or the F6F Hellcat?
Sorry, I’m an airplane nerd. I’d love to see the pics of the others! Great job on this one!

yes sir you are correct it is a B-25 mitchell and an f6f hellcat, I completely agree. They are not models per say so much as toys. The other two are in my projects all have been posted on lumberjocks.
