Slide of the Month Extra-Philmont PSR


September 2023

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

Back in the 1949, the United Nations road convention and the Vienna conference of 1969 came up with a method to quickly distinguish the country of origin of registered car in Europe. It became very trendy for some Americans to put the white oval on their cars to show where they had been in Europe. Later it was popular to have stickers with the local letters of the nearest airport to a person's home. Now there are white oval stickers for all kinds of things but this the only one I would want on my car.

Carved from pallet wood, letters are not an easy thing to do and have them come out uniform. Painted with hobby paints and sealed with a couple coats of poly.
