Default Pop Rivet Art

This arrived in the mail today. Good 'ol pal Jimmie New (Stearman, BirdDog) was fascinated that an airplane could be built with pop rivets, so he set about to properly document the epiphany, airplane style. I kinda like it, but then, I'm pretty much as bent as he is. Too close for missiles, switching to rivet guns. *Pop!* Gotcha.

California is a weird place... Maybe living in constant fear of earthquakes?

I'm a Zonie (from Arizona). We have long been amused at the antics of our neighbor Californicators!🙈

That... is... awesome.






Even if it does look vaguely dirty. I'm sure it's just the lighting.

What does his nose look like after you pull his tail?

Cool artwork! I like it.

Gee...um...don't quite know how to break this diplomatically, but that artist fella...he moved to a different state. Care to guess which one? Oops!

I'm guessing Oregon, and more specifically - Portland.
