That's wild. How does that work, like legally?

Obviously cars/bikes need to be inspected and cleared to be registered and road worthy, how do you register a homemade plane? Does it share some core item from a totaled plane? Did the design use a open source design schematic or was it some historic replica? Seems like there has to be some method to the madness I assume.

Well legally I'm making it for a client to a clients set of cad drawings.... It's a static display and will have a plastic reproduction engine and little kids will be able to sit in it and make engine noises..... It's only a full size exhibit... With no intention of being airworthy.... The only inspection earlier this week was by the client, for approval, so I can get paid....

Ok I missed the model part. I thought it was a legit shell.

Very cool either way

Thanks!

A while back I was asked to design and build a condiment table for a local restaurant. It had to fit an angled wall from window edge to window edge, where a straight table wouldn't work as well....

This is the final piece..

Thanks for the comments guy's...

I was contacted by Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, which have their headquarters here in Columbus, to put together a proposal and build signage for one of their parlors in the Art District....

This is what I came up with...

Default BMW Brake Cooling Project

Here's a fun project that was done for a local BMW owner....

He wanted better brake cooling that would bring the air directly into the center of the disc with a fairly tight clearance...

I'm in Dayton, near Yellow Springs....a great area for arts, hiking, biking, food, and drink.

In fact, there's a new brewery in town with good beer on tap.

Hit me up.
