Although I have plastic kits and some diecast models both new and old, I have been fascinated by models made from non-traditional materials. I have seen aircraft (planes and helicopters) made from recycled tin (aluminum) cans and twisted wire, as well as painted ceramic (I have one from Colombia), made by skilled artisans and teens in non-Western countries where the majority of the population cannot afford $20 or $30 for a GeminiJets or Corgi model. Does anyone here collect such folk art representations of aircraft?

(I have found several interesting ones on the Net from countries around the world, but cannot list their Web site addresses here.)
