Children's Crafts - Make a Shell Airplane

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Shell Airplane from www.walkaboutcrafts.com

You will need: 
Whole razor shell for the fuselage, a longer valve for the front wing and a smaller one for the rear wing.
Small thick trough valve for the tail plane.
Three banded wedge halves (all from the same side) for the propeller.
Grey top for the propeller hub and two truncated grey tops for the wheels.
Two tusks for the wing struts and two smaller ones for the wheel struts.

Glue the two valves for the fuselage together. Place the front and rear wings parallel to each other, hollow side up. Glue the fuselage to the wings, support in position and leave to dry. Assemble the propellers - lay three valves, hollow side down, on the work surface and glue them together, end to end. Glue the hub in the middle of the propeller assembly. Glue the wing struts to the fuselage and wing, with the wide end attached slightly above the bottom of the fuselage. Glue the wheel struts to the fuselage and wing struts, support them at an appropriate angle and leave to dry. Glue the wheels to the wheel struts. When the model is rigid, turn it over, glue the tailplane to the rear wing and support it on either side. Finally glue the propeller assembly to the fuselage.
