Sam spotted this extraordinary Waco UMF-5 at Oshkosh 2005 and decided it was just too pretty to pass by. Prints were produced from an original created in colored pencil. The close-up front view captures all the details of the Jacobs engine and Sensenich propeller. After finishing the piece, Sam discovered the great story behind this airplane. Its a reproduction built from a set of plans over a 12-year period by John and Belinda Hudec of Oklahoma. John personally did all the welding, woodwork, compound aluminum metal forming, leather sewing, engine buildup, and covering. The Hudecs were honored that Sam chose to make a work of art from their labor of love.
The image size is 21″ x 15″ and prints are available in a Limited Edition of 250 Signed & Numbered and 25 Artist Proofs.
