Junk on the HorizonDecember 17th, 2009 in member junk
This is a gift for my dad. His hobby is building airplanes and occasionally getting to fly his 'experimental' aircraft. I made this out of spare airplane parts and rivets, mounted on some grey wood. The inspiration is this Beechcraft artificial gyro horizon I found on Ebay. it fit perfectly with a scrap piece of sheet metal he had formed into a panel for his RV-6, but discarded a few years ago. (He's much more of a perfectionist than me!) It will look familiar when he gets it back, and hopefully this finished piece inspires him to fly again soon, and that good things are always on the horizon.
