I had found this airplane pattern online ( THis is my first attempt. I skipped a few cuts (like the engine and cockpit cutouts). My best friend’s son loves Batman, and so I painted the plane and gave it to him. He loved it! I”m planning on making all sorts of painted variations (my nephew loves Super Grover, and my other nephew loves cows, meaning black and white splotches pattern). I need a smaller sander, though. The rough edges are hard to sand out when you can’t get to them. Maybe my Dremel tool will come in handy next time…

Nice plane. The Dremel is great for small areas , but the little drums wear out too quickly. A belt is much better since there is so much more abrasive.

Would sanding the pieces before assembly work better (unless you already do that):-) ? It is a nice looking toy!

Thanks for th suggestion , Mark, but I already had done that. The tough part is the fuselage, with all it’s bends and curves. I’m goign to try using my dremel next time. I think that might help.
