I made these planes to give to the kiddies at our annual Labor Day pig pickin. I supplied the washable paints and planes, the kids supplied the mess. They had a blast, and it kept them busy for about 5 minutes and 37 seconds.
I used/slightly modified the plan found here http://www.stevedgood.com/plane.pdf. They are built mostly from dimensional pine. A dowel rod and some purchased wheels is all it takes for the landing gear. It was a pretty easy but satisfying project. Especially when you see the kids playing with a well built toy.
