    Love it!! About the only thing I can ID is the tricycle back step for wings and the spinner that you're using for a prop. One thing though...red goes on the left, green on the right. (easy to remember...red is never right, like a red light..something's wrong)
    I wish I could come up with stuff like that!!

    Recognize the ford emblem you used for the tail.

    Thanks John, those lenses just screw on so I'll change 'em around.
    Right and right on the Ford truck emblem and tricycle step.

    Is the cockpit canopy a roof top running light lens?

    Yup, and JD hit them all but the the rotary engine which is actually just the centers of 3/8 compression fittings put on with hex head sheet metal screws. I think the lights were for a boat, they were tied together and you can put a D cell battery in each one to light it up. Also you can't see but the wheels are old steel furniture castors, the tail wheel even swivels
