That is a great job and a very eye catching look. Your laminating looks great, a well done job.

Cleaning my glasses will not make me look any better.
But will make what I am looking at better!

That is an exquisite piece of woodworking. I don't think I could master something like that, and I have done woodworking for 40 years.

That is very, very nice work!

Did you use a plan/design you got somewhere, or did you just wing it?

Thanks for the nice comments about the segmented vessel.

I spent about 45-50 hours total.
I saw a picture of one similar and 'winged' it from there.

It's not as difficicult to make as it may appear. A good sharp blade is required along with some patience. The sawn edges were glued without sanding.
The finish is one diluted coat of varnish followed by wax.

Attached is a photograph of a plane I made about 15 years ago and continue to fly. Built strictly from plans, no kit parts. Some of you may find this to be interesting.
It took 5550 hours to complete!
It's all wood, a Turner T-40A design. 150 hp Lycoming engine and a cruise of 140 mph.

That gives 'Winging it' a whole new meaning. Very nice!

Geez, I'm impressed when I can make my own lunch. Looks like I need to practice some more...

Hmm, Turner T-40A?
Thought I knew about every plane out there... where's that pre-fabbed?
Looks like an excellent job (from this angle ).

Hi Clarionflyer,

So this one escaped your attention? It isn't a poplular plane because it's a long building process and kits are available today.

No parts are pre-fabricated, strictly from plans, stick by stick. Visit the Gene Turner website to see some of the planes he built.

Thanks for your comments.

I just happen to be friends with a bunch of incredible airplane builders (not me, I'm a dingo, I just fly'em ). The one guy I know just rebuilt a t-6 that won Oshkosh.
It's a gift... and I'm jealous of you.

To win at Oshkosh is an honor. My Turner T-40A won the first prize at Arlington on the west coast some years ago.
I've been to Oshkosh several times and on one occasion flew there in a small plane, but not my T-40A.
