When my son was a preschooler my mom bought him a lamp that looked like an airplane.
Here’s a link of how it looked like.
We moved several times since and the lamp moved into a box and disappeared in my work shop…
When we were furnishing his room in our current house I asked him what to do with the empty socket that was hanging from the ceiling. He said “you know, I really liked my old airplane lamp. If only it looked more like a real plane”
Well this is how I transformed it for his 11th Birthday:
It’s an Antonov AN-2 that we saw in an air show.
And the final result:
I still need to add all the hardware but I’d like to wait for the glue to dry a day or two.
