I found a picture of this plane and my son went nuts. He loves to spin propellers, always has.

Oh. My. That’s really cool.

I’m just finishing up a rocking horse for my nephew, but when I initially balked at a rocking horse, his mom said “how about a helicopter”, so apparently there’s some aviation interest there? I’m thinking that he may have to have a rocking floatplane to go with that horse.

It’s a good thing you can hold it, then you would see the warts. My son has been spinning the propeller since the minute it went on. It was still just a block with a propeller on it at that point. I didn’t think I would get it back to finish it. And Debbie, your welcome to spin the prop, didn’t you see, I making one for my daughter.
