In working out a design I will try different ways to carve the same thing and see what is either preferred or what makes the most pleasing carving. So here is test pilot 3 n 4 Santa, I am probably happiest with the last Santa with the goggles down. Even though I still think I could add more detail to the carving I like the look of the goggles and the hint of eyes peering through the glass. I also like the Army Air Corp patch on the ball of the cap, I painted the ball itself in army green to acknowledge the armies part in the birth of the Air Corp. Speaking of which, it is the Army’s 237 birthday. Happy birthday and thanks to all who wear the uniform of the Army as well any of the armed services.
