    Came out really nice Bob! I'm lazy and lousy with a brush--I probably would have pocketed holes and used Real bolts
    Great Job!

    Very cool, I could see this in many locations from homes to restraunts. Far more interesting than a painting of a propeller.

    Where's the rest of the plane? That looks excellent! I have seen something similar where someone made a steam engine front, then painted a tunnel on the wall to make it look like it was coming out of a tunnel.

    Maybe you could paint the wall to look like this is sticking out of the wall
