My son’s kindergarten class asked for a toy plane. They have an event celebrating one of the pioneering non-stop flight from the USA to Europe (Lithuania) by two American-Lithuanian pilots Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas.
I tried to make this plane as similar to the original as my skills allowed. There is a problem: there is no place I can buy toy wooden wheels in my country.
More info about the actual plane, the flight and it’s pilots are here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lituanica
