  • Hullo, and thanks!

    Hullo (in Scottish) or Hi in 'Murican?
    I stumbled across this site by accident while looking to keep my idle hands busy as I was hunting for easy whirligig patterns. I found some old plans by Mr Paul Meisel from about 10 years ago about a P31 Mustang here https://scrollsawer.com/2009/08/28/airplane-whirligig/ , so I decided to have a go. Unfortunately I don't have a scroll saw, so my efforts were all by hand, however I was very happy with the results as were the neighbours who despite having an HOA, have not complained once! So thank you Mr Meisel for sharing, and thank you Scrollsaw Woodworking for sharing. It was a fun little project.​

    By the way, I did not follow the dimensions exactly as I just used scrap wood that was lying around and scaled to fit - also, for the propeller, I decided to make it from a single block - that turned out to be slightly more difficult than first imagined... but it works!

        You did a beautiful job with it. Great paintwork! I can see Carving the prop out of one piece considering the grain direction changes etc. was a challenge.
