My husband loves to make model airplanes (which I think is really cute, seeing a huge 6 foot 4 inches guy putting together these tiny parts). Given that we had nowhere to display his plethora of planes he decided to make a display coffee table that he could put his planes in. I couldn’t believe it….he had never made a piece of furniture in his life. He’s not the handy-man type of guy to say the least (and I’m ok with that) so I was really impressed that he did his research and made this display coffee table completely by himself. He even painted it as well, applied some stencils and put the box on wheels so its easy to move around.
The Lancaster Bomber is the latest and largest model that he has built. This one took him 2 years to complete. It was a mail order subscription of 125 issues and is made from aluminium, steel and wooden parts. Brian tells me that it is made to the same specification as the real Lancaster Bomber. He also painted the bomber. Dale my brother took the photo below.
