Introduction: Cereal Box Airplane

About: I like taking stuff apart

I made this airplane by  cutting out the different pieces of it from a cereal box. I google image searched biplanes to get an idea of  what I wanted to do. Using a ruler and a pencil, I drew out  the shapes on the inside of the cereal box. I cut them out using scissors.

I apologize for the poor picture quality, they were taken on my cell phone because I do not own a cell phone

This project was fairly easy to make. You can print out pictures of planes and trace them or sketch them onto the cereal box. I was feeling adventurous, so I did it by hand. It does take some patience, waiting for the glue to dry before adding on the next piece.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Cereal Box
Wire Hanger
Random bits of plastic/ rubber (for wheels)

Pliers ( for the wire hanger)

Step 2: Putting It All Together

Once all the pieces are cut out, I glued them together using wood glue. I used toothpicks to hold up the pieces and keep them stable while the glues dried.

Step 3: The Wheels

For the wheels, I used these round bits of plastic I found lying around and glued them to small lengths of wire hanger, then glued them to the actual plane.

Step 4: Conclusion
