Kenya: model airplane made from scratch

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Kenya, Technology

A Kenyan man builds a model airplane from scratch [1]: “Phillip Isohe is a metal fabricator in the jua kali, non-traditional industrial sector, in Kenya. In his spare time he builds models of airplanes and buses. This seems to be an extension of what many of us did while growing up in Africa – building wire, or tin can, cars. What’s most interesting is the excruciating attention to detail that he puts into each one. In fact, they each have motors with working lights, steering, engine and interiors.”
