Someone gave me this small fan. It has a light duty motor and stand. To small for most of the heavy vintage parts I use . I had to get creative to use a light load not to overload the oscillator and stress the motor. I decided a T- square concept and parallel bar like the one I used to use in an Architects office before computers would be a valued concept. I started welding the fuselage luckily the back of the motor housing was steel so I welded the metal rods into a triangular shape to hold the T- square and tail section. I then glued the parallel bars together for wings and set the guide wires . For a hood ornament type I used a vintage mechanical pencil guiding the Architect on his intended designing destination to fly into the uncharted clouds of creativity. All this and Heaven too.

That idea just blew me away!

Vintage plane with now vintage parts; some people can just put things together making a good design statement.

Wooohoooo.
I love this fan, as an Architect I am melted now.
The coolest fan I have ever seen.
Best thoughts,

That is so cool. T-square biplane fan. This would be great hanging from the ceiling.
