Primitive plane

This crate-wood plane was made by a Georgia woman, June Allison. I really like it and have tried to find similar work by Allison, without success. In the middle is a screwdriver, which I guess is supposed to represent the plane's steering mechanism. Attached to the tail is a clothespin. The front opens to reveal a compartment. The simple green and off-white paint decoration is very attractive.


  1. Wow.. it's like, if Herman Bridgets made airplanes... this thing is just insane.

  2. It's hard to see in this photo, but if you look at the front of the plane, a wing juts out on one side of the propeller, as if the normal number of wings just wasn't enough.

  3. I like this one. Maybe she was an aspiring pilot.
