About: I absolutly love airplanes and just about anything with an airfoil. I own 6 Chickens and love inventing and building stuff.

    I got it from an abandoned house that I live next to. It was all mangled from a drop but my nabor fixed it right up! If you are looking for one you might be able to find it in a antique store or ebay.
