Is there any interest in a series of little planes this size? Shown is the P47 Thunderbolt and the P51 Mustang. They are super easy to make from 1/8", 1/4" and 3/4" standard lumber and hobby lobby type plywood for wings and tails.thunderbolt 026.png  hand.png

The dimensions of each plane are about 3" H x 8" W x 7" L. I think they'd sell great at crafts shows and are a good size to fit in the palm of your hand.

YES!  Great planes John.  I sell a lot of the Delta and Cessna planes at craft shows I attend.  I am sure I would do well with these!

These planes are looking real good. The size is perfect for making a complete squadron for little Pilots hands.

I like them. It's also nice that they used standard lumber sizes. I'm in.

I like these planes John. They look easy to make (even for me!) and I love that they use standard size timber.

Yes, Yes ,Yes WWII war birds in particular I am interested in. How about a Curtiss P-40.

Modern fighters would be nice too.

I started messing around with this idea a year ago and got side tracked.

These are about five inches long.

I need to know how you get the wing through the body without glue all over everything?

OK, I watched the video and I can see mostly how you did it.

On the P-51 how do you get the wing to pop in easily and still get a good fit?

On the P-47 I'm piece that goes under the wing is cut large and sanded to fit? If your painting it You could just glue it in with epoxy to fill the gap or just fill it with spot putty.
