About the Entry:
Ready to take to the skies is the F-18 Fighter Jet by renowned Art Car Artist Isaac Cohen. He's won first place awards for his outstanding wooden cars - Splinter, Little Splinter, Big J and Slider - but to Celebrate the 30th anniversary of his coming to the best country there is, Isaac created a special tribute to thank America's service members, her heroes. The steel and fiberglass scale model of an F-18 fighter jet measures 13 ft. from nose to tail with a wing span of 10.5'. Mounted on a converted 1991 Geo Metro, it features the logos of each of America's military services and the words Thank You and Heroes. The jet took over 2,000 man-hours to build and is Isaac's personal thank you to those who fight to keep us free - past, present and future.
