I made this Bi-Wing from Cherry, Wanut and Aspen wood and finished it with a coat of Shillac. DSCN3725.jpg

Love the warmth of a shellac finish.

Nice shine on that plane TommyT.

I like it when a toy displays the natural wood finish! The finish on your plane looks great! Using different woods, like you have done, gives the toy a lot of character.

Nicely done.

I was wondering if anybody had as of yet tried to do the same finish as they do on the Bentleys and Jags. About a month ago I was reading an article that stated that they spray coat Seven coats of Lacquer and wet sand papered between coats, this is the kind of finish I am going to try on my next project just to see how it works out. I think they start with walnut it seems but it could have been something else but the finish in the end comes out like glass in fact this Plane is not to far from that same finish. It is a great job you have done with this one and I would be proud to have it hanging from my ceiling in the living room.
