Another project with my oldest grandson.
Last summer he asked me to make an airplane for him. He was 8 years old at the time so I thought I could combine the project with some Canadian aircraft history. I hoped that my grandson would learn some history as well as have a new model.
Aircraft buffs out there might already know that the Avro Arrow was a 1950’s project to design and develop a new generation Canadian fighter aircraft. The plane had great promise until the government of the day decided to terminate the project and destroy the prototypes as well as all of the plans.
The wing span on this model is approx. 14 in and the material is from some leftover 2×6 lumber scraps. The project helped me to set up my bandsaw and develop some skill and techniques.
