Handmade aluminum can aircraft and other vehicles.

I got started because I was at a restaurant and i saw a plane someone made from beer cans. I thought wow that is unusual and since I like recycling too I decided to learn how to make this and other planes and vehicles. I researched the internet and found a few instructions but these planes werent near as good quality as the ones i make are but then I found a Site who sells plans on how to make many of these planes. I purchased couple of the plans and then started doing to them and figuring out how to make other planes on my own. Since then I have created many different planes and helicopters. I am just now starting on doing cars, trucks, trains, and even an 18 wheeler. It is rather addicting. Once I made my first one which was the start wars tie fighter I am selling here I was hooked and once I finish one i cant wait to start the next one. I learn new things with each one i make and i get better at it each time. I can make different planes at your request out of any can you wish however I may have to charge more if its a can I don't usually have or i have to purchase a 12 pack of beer for that type of can. I dont drink so i mainly have soda cans. I am willing to make them out of any cans though. See my pictures below for some of the planes I have made. These have already been sold though but you can special order any of these planes below. If you dont see a plane that you want just let me know because if I don't have it then I may be able to create it or get plans to make it from elsewhere so just tell me which plane you may want and I will tell you if it is one I can make. I am still learning on the cars, trucks, and trains but i will make one if this is what you want instead of a plane. Please contact with any questions. I am currently working on an F-4u corsair made from Pepsi cans so it will be blue since these were navy planes and they were colored blue.

    I am just your average person who enjoys making crafts and who loves anything to do with aircraft and aviation. I also like to recycle so i decided to combine these to create my aluminum can aircraft.
