This is the first airplane I've ever made. I consider it a classic too.

This is my 'classic' too One of my fav. deviations from this is to fold the nose into the middl, giving better flight characteristics, and a safer plane.
You should try the one on my instructable, it ROCKS!

"what? no way that will fly, your retarded........ OMG!!!"
