I got the idea for making this individual his going away gift from the fact I once entered his office and the door slammed open, knocking his shelf off the wall. He had a wooden model of the same aircraft that fell and broke the blades off. So I figured I would protect these by keeping them within the confines of the box. It is a TOP DOWN view of the same aircraft.

Damn good project Patriot!
Makes me think of a young sergeant that left our unit to fly Chinooks.
Thanks for posting.

Another great 3D shadowbox and going away gift, you have a great talent for producing these…excellent job.

(Always loved seeing those come in to dump supplies when out bush. I think back then in VN they were CH-47’s not real sure)

would really love to have this made for one of my Marines as a going away gift. What would you charge to make one?

Have your say...
