I came across an antique sling blade and decided to make a single wing fan plane out of it. I found two hood ornaments that came off an old studebaker . They had a hollow inside with a plastic nose. I went to several places to find small lights to fit inside the hood ornaments but couldn’t find them from a lighting company . I went to an auto parts company and found Leed lights that go into dashboards that were 110 and didn;t need a transformer . I then fashioned the lights and welded a fuselage to hold a small sling blade I made with two wings to match the two light pieces. Again to see it oscillate and move with lights is mesmerizing . I think I might have invented a new category for Art these vintage fan planes fit into. Found kinetic sculpture. All this and Heaven too.
