Introduction: Recycled Spark-plug Biplane

Hi All,

You may have seen on internet, that many have recycled old spark-plugs into various decorative items like X-Wing, biplane, etc. All of these are made by welding metallic sheets on the spark-plug. Now I am not qualified ot trained to use a welding machine but I wanted to make one....

So, In this instructable, I will share how to make a decorative biplane using an old spark-plug, some popsicle sticks and spare buttons that we never use.

Step 1: What Do We Need ?

  • Spark-plug
  • Popsicle sticks
  • wooden skewers
  • Spare Buttons (that we never use)
  • Super glue
  • Cutter

Step 2: Tail Wings

  • Cut a 30 mm and 15 mm length of popsicle sticks
  • Stick the smaller piece as shown to make the tail wings
  • Cut the edges to give wing like look

Step 3: Wings

  • Stick two sets of two popsicle sticks as shown
  • Then super glue them on the spark plug to make a biplane
  • Be cautious when using super glue

Step 4: Details

  • Using wooden skewers, add two supports and one at an angle on both sides
  • Add rotors as shown

Step 5: Wheels

  • Attach two skewers, at the bottom of the plane
  • Let it dry, and then add buttons as Tyres
  • We need 2 for front and 1 for back

Done!! we have a recycled spark-plug biplane decor. I hope you like this super quick build..
