Hi JTalbot
That is good advice.  The only problem is I never know ahead of time who is going to order what.
Your idea is a good one however, thanks.

Thanks Roly
Even I was pleased with the way they came out.
Now if the postal service does not ruin them.[frown]that's me worrying.

I don't know how much L10(sorry don't have the right symbol).  So what do you do when painting?
Do you brush paint everything?
I don't have a laser level, but I should have used the yardstick on the lines. LOL
Thanks for the kind words.

Thank You George
The bad thing about International orders is it can take a long time to get there.  In this case 10 days.  I will be tired of holding my breath by then. [redface]

Ken,
The letters on the wings in your 2nd photo. Are those etched on or are they actually engraved? Can't really tell. Nice clean job though. What do the letters stand for and why on two planes? Just curious.

Hi Frank

These little planes were order by the client for her Son's 3rd birthday.
She wanted the light green on for the birthday boy JL, and the yellow one for his brother SC.  They are the first and middle initials of each boy.  The rest of the planes have no initials because she was not sure of all the names at the time of order, and it would have increased the cost some.
She wanted the lettering on the wings, and a different colors, so the brothers planes would be different from the rest.

My client asked me to put decals on the wings, but for the little guys I thought it might be better to cut the initials into the wings.  So I cut them on the Scroll Saw.

Thanks for asking Frank
