Take some advice from someone who didn't- build a glass or plexiglass protective housing when you are done. Too much work invested to become a dust magnet.

Or get knocked off on to the floor,or little feely fingers exploring .

Gee Al, that's really neat. The details are so realistic. You must have a steady hand and good eyes.

Fantastic! I'll bet the rigging will be a lot of fun!

I've got to admit, I'm wondering if I'll be able to get it done so that it at least looks right.

Fantastic Al...you certainly have the patience of Job for something like that.

My fat fingers would have glue all over the place and make it look like a fiber-glass boat.:P Way out of my league in so many ways.

Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely fantastic, Al..  Way beyond my capabilities.  Don't give up.  Ever..  I like the glass enclosure idea.

 

Keep posting images as you go.  We like progress status images.

Not all that steady Gene ! And the fat fingers do get in the way. When I get frustrated with it, it's put aside for awhile

Thanks Larry. Now smaller details, and rigging that  really will be a challenge for me. It's a bit larger than I had anticipated. Approx. 35" long and 26 1/2" tall. The colors are the authentic Niagara colors.

Amazing work, really takes some talent (and dexterity) to do something like that.

Looks fantastic so far Al!  When did you start this project?  I know all about lengthy projects...

It's definitely been a lengthy project that only gets attention when I'm in the mood.  I don't even remember when I started it, probably 2- 3 years ago. Maybe Larry Jenkins has a better memory than I do about when It was started, since he provided the model kit for me.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
