This will definitely bring a smile to your face. It is a vintage seashell airplane complete with a fighter pilot and his gun. The plane’s propellers even spin! The body of the airplane is a horse conch shell that holds the pilot and his gun. The pilot is sitting on a shell seat is made from pipe cleaners and some sort of husk or natural cones. His hands and feet are shells. The gun is a simple pipe cleaner. There are large and small clam shells and at least three other kinds of shells that make up the plane and wheels. The wing and wheel supports are wire. The propeller shells are glued to metal pieces that attach to the spinners. A clear whitish glue holds everything together. What a great addition to your aviation collection, shell art collection or as a gift for that pilot who has everything. A definite conversation piece! Circa 1970’s.

Measurements: Approximately 6 ¼” long, 8” wing tip to wing tip and 3 ½” high.

Condition: Vintage 1970’s. Excellent condition. See photos.
