    This is pretty cool. I'd love to have something like this in the landscaping although my wife would disagree. Kinda like in front of a museum but in your yard.

    Anyone have any other photos of something similar?

    No, but there's a Jet Provost up for auction near me. Starting bid $4,000

    My mom did not like the Teenie Two project I brought home and stuck in the back yard. Only one wing was messed up. It got deconstructed. Unlucky my wife keeps buying yard art. Some are pretty good but some is oh boy. We will not say a thing about the four project cars in the back. They are under carports so not in the yard. I learned something. No houses, I did see a Beech 18 on a stand at an airport in a hard bank. First time I glanced at it I thought it was a crashing airplane! I believe the EAA building in Monroe Louisiana has a Davis DA5 on a stand.

    Not real airplanes, but I know of a bed and breakfast that has a pile of full-scale replicas. I’ve met the builder and seen his albums of build pics, seems like he makes a new replica just about every year and they’re mostly made of recycled building materials.

    D0318468-DEF9-45A6-8100-52A7E4BA8262.jpeg Teenie 2 wreck. Landing gear collapsed on landing, and the airplane cartwheeled. No serious injuries to the pilot. Engine and canopy destroyed, spars damages beyond economic repair. In the builder’s front yard.
