Redneck Aviation Day
Contest Directions: December 7 is the International Civil Aviation Day. The day was established in 1996 by the United Nations General Assembly to honor the 50th anniversary of the signing the Convention on International Civil Aviation. Two years ago FreakingNews declared December 7 to be called the "Redneck Aviation Day" to honor any home-made airplanes constructed with household items and other unconventional materials.
To celebrate the Redneck Aviation Day at FreakingNews, construct airplanes (partially or fully) from any household items or other unusual items and materials - hair-brushes, potatoes, cigars, etc. Here's a good example by nonno.

        • thanks Disasterman111 , RICKYTREK1 , tinmon857 !

          What i learnt from this one -

          i didn't know how to properly put the smoke coming out of the top chimneys .. thought it would be easy but when it came down to it ... couldn't do it.

          also i wanted to make that propeller spin , i tried it with "radial spin" but coudn't get it at the right spot ? is there a better way ?

          and finally the flames are flame brushes applied twice , 1 yellow and 1 red , is there a better way to do that ?

          if you guys have any tuts that can show me how to do those , really appreciate it ! thanks

        • One thing I notice, other than what you've mentioned, is a fairly simple fix use the distort tool to adjust the perspective angle of your bull horns to follow that of the vehicle you can use the windshield as a visual guide.
