Where nature and art meet!
This is my rendition of the famous fighter Hellcat plane that made a name for itself during WWII. My brother was a plane captain on the USS Lake Champlain carrier where he worked with F6F Hellcats. In memory of my brother, I attempted to simulate the Hellcat with gourd parts and a few pieces of wood.
Putting all of these pieces together was a veritable nightmare! I purposely did not paint the entire plane because I wanted some of the actual gourd parts to be visible.
The Hellcats were credited with destroying 5, 223 enemy aircraft during WWII. My hope is for some WWII pilot or plane captain of Hellcats to visit my blog and comment on what I created.
