Hi Friends

You might have seen these cute little Sport Planes on the tables at the last craft show post we did.

They were made from the Little Village Toy Plans for table saws book from toymakingplans.com.

They are simple and very quick to make, and did well at the craft show.  We made 10 of them and sold 5 painted and one unpainted one.

The first photo is the demo built, which took less than an hour.  I wanted to see how it went together. DSC05154_mini.JPG 
I found I wanted to make a couple of changes 
1st: I made the body 1/2" longer to give a little more space between the wings.
2nd: I made the front wing just a little wider.
3rd: I cut the groove in the body for the wing just a little deeper so the wing would fit level with the body.  Then I could mount the cab piece forward just a little and glue to both the body and the wing.  Again for me it just looked better.

Photos below show the final results.  Sorry I could not show the finished plan one but it sold before I made the photos.

If you are looking for a quick and easy toy for your next craft show this might be it.
It is in the Little People Toy Plans book.
This little plane was priced at $7.00 at the show.

Just some ideas.
Thanks

Ken - Nice modifications to the plan set and appeared to be a good seller for you at your recent craft fair.
This is another simple build plan set with many items to make.
Here are a couple of photos.

Well as a learner you are doing a great job but as a teacher you are top shelf ... I would say that over the last year many of us have learned more from you with your sales tips and your building tip so I would say keep on keeping on what ever you are doing is working up to this point. Wonder what the child play per plane is ... better than the MPG on my Dodge PU!!!
