A Mailbox That Looks Like An Airplane

Even though I have posted some of these photos on Facebook in the past, I haven't written about this on the blog.    The recent story I wrote about the Oshkosh AirVenture reminded me of this project my husband built for our son in law.  He is quite difficult to buy for, so my husband decided that  he would build him something airplane related.  We decided on a mailbox.  I went online and found a pattern for one.  When we downloaded it, it was gigantic.  It would be impossible to make it, so we scaled it down.  The painting was a challenge, and that didn't turn out.  Neither of us are artistic enough to be good painters.  Mike ended up painting a very simple design.  Here is the final product.
