Step 1: Drawing the Shapes
Using a pen, draw the fuselage, wings and tale wing. You can make these almost any shape but make the wings symmetrical. You could even use a 25 Pence polystyrene glider to use as an outline.
Step 2: Cutting Out
using the scissors, cut out the shapes not forgetting to cut out slots for it all to slot up.
Step 3: Slotting the Plane Together
slot the plane together and test it out. If the wings are a bit wobbly you can add some glue.
