Our guess is that this plane will not fly in any plane collector’s home. Both you and I know that model plane collectors are hard to find and even harder to please. Our transparent model will sell to people who want an interesting, intricate piece of home décor. That is in this case, a plane. There are simply not many things you can hang as décor. Sure… a chandelier… a mobile…. But a striking object, beautifully made, showing a web-like construction in detail… they’re far and few between and hard to find. This plane will fly out the door!
