This is another from the Mackowicki book. Maple body and 1/4” Baltic Birch surfaces, birch dowel engines, oak landing gear for a little durability. Only took an afternoon to shape and assemble.

Sorry, buckeyedudes. Try searching Amazon for “Making Heirloom Toys” by Jim Mackowiki.

Nice looking plane, I love to build toys and over the years I have compiled an extensive collection of plans that I have culled from the internet. If your looking for anything let me know.
