Seeking Wood Carver for Custom Airplane Model (Burbank)

compensation: To be discussed per design

Hoping to find a talented wood carver who would be willing to carve a custom, 3D model airplane for a special gift. The model would represent a specific type of airplane for which I would provide specifications and details.

The dimensions of the model should be in the 6-12" wingspan arena, though the particulars of the design would depend on our conversation and collaboration. The intention is for the model to be a handled instructional tool for flight instructors, so should be rugged, sleek, and simple. Pilots call them "briefing sticks."

I might want to finish it with a stain to highlight a nice woodgrain, though I'm also open to painting depending on the pros or cons of various wood types you might recommend to me. Whether or not you could/will do the finishing is also open to discussion.

Let's work together to come up with something great.

I'd prefer to discuss a design with someone who has a demonstrated carving talent before we discuss cost, but I'm happy to pay an appropriate amount for the work.

Preferred delivery would be in 4-8 weeks.

Please share examples of your work -- I'd love to see it!
