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.
