Red Baron Triplane Emo night light


The red baron triplane emo night light was inspired because of the new photos that was found. Yes, I know that Red Baron. Manfred von Richthofen, did not have a mustache and that he did not fly a triplane but that’s how I will remember him from the movies I saw as a kid. The red baron triplane emo night light was made from a beer logo and picture of a triplane so for the purist, sorry I am just enjoying a fond memory.

Just a bit on the real man of the red baron triplane emo nigh light as per Wikipedia

Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen (2 May 1892 – 21 April 1918), also widely known as the Red Baron, was a German fighter pilot with the Imperial German Army Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during the First World War. He is considered the ace-of-aces of the war, being officially credited with 80 air combat victories.

Originally a cavalryman, Richthofen transferred to the Air Service in 1915, becoming one of the first members of Jasta 2 in 1916. He quickly distinguished himself as a fighter pilot, and during 1917 became leader of Jasta 11 and then the larger unit Jagdgeschwader 1 (better known as the “Flying Circus”). By 1918, he was regarded as a national hero in Germany, and respected and admired even by his enemies.

Richthofen was shot down and killed near Amiens on 21 April 1918. There has been considerable discussion and debate regarding aspects of his career, especially the circumstances of his death. He remains perhaps the most widely known fighter pilot of all time, and has been the subject of many books, films and other media.

The night lights can be made from any

  • picture,
  • drawing or
  • photo

that you have and brings a great memory to you. This picture is then converted into a pure black and white image and any text that you want is added.

The black and white image is sent to you before carving is done to make sure that you are happy with the image. We also simulate all our carving before doing the real carving.  In some cases, we will suggest a larger size especially when there is a large amount of detail in the picture. The carving tool removes around 0.25 by 0.24 mm of plexiglas and in some cases, detail is destroyed. Thus, by increasing the canvas size, the detail is protected and you will have the desired effect. This image is then carved on plexiglas and mounted.

The image is either wall mounted or on a foot piece for free-standing units. The foot piece is normally from Walnut, Oak, Poplar or cherry wood but can also be from plastic,brass or aluminum.

Red Baron Triplane Emo night light size

The maximum size of the image use in the art decor night light is 800 by 500 mm. The thickness is from 3 mm to 25 mm but we mainly work in 5 mm plexiglass thickness. The standard size images are carved from a 200 by 200 by 5 mm piece of plexiglas fitted on a 190 mm by 60 by 20 mm wooden base. When making wall units, the standard size is 600 by 400 by 5 mm as this gives a beautiful clear picture even with a high level of detail.

  • on-off switch in cable as a hand switch or foot switch,
  • day-night switch to improve power utilisation,
