Balsa Wood Plane

Introduction: Balsa Wood Plane

About: I like creativeness, I also make Stop Motion shorts on a Youtube channel called TheJandJChronicles

Step 1: Back Fins

Pin the pieces of wood on there and glue it together, wait till it dries.

Step 2: Wings

Same thing as before, only this time you may need to bend the wings upward with something To prop it up, glue the wheels on.

Step 3: Body

This part you have to do twice and make the two parts a mirror image of the other so you don't have two sides that are exactly the same.

Step 4: Glue

Glue it all together

Step 5: Rubber Band

If you want it to fly then add the rubber band, put it in with a stick of wood at the end then have it hook on to the propeller.

Step 6: Cover-up

For this part use Elmer's glue and glue piece by piece of the plane

Step 7: Paint

Paint it however you like, just don't choose crappy paint like me.

    I've accidentally glued my hands together many times

    Nice build, I used to attach the plans to a corkboard so I could use thumbtacks to hold the pieces in place as the glue sets. Also, I place a sheet of wax paper over the plans to avoid accidentally gluing the part to the paper... don't ask how many times I did that before I figured out to use the wax paper lol

    Guillow's

    Looks pretty nice! There were some crazy old warplanes flying over my house on the way to an airshow last weekend, saw a Fairchild B-25 and a B-17...

    looks like a Guillow's Peanut Scale model. p47 I think.

    Thanks I will take a look.

    That kit looks cool! Who makes it?
