    Ok...it's weekend...probably raining and you have the kids hanging on your trousers...:cry:

    WHAT TO DO ! ! !

    I know....let's BUILD A



    We start with a teenie weenie piece of paper ( or BIG for all you cheaters out there... :twisted: )


    Fold in half...


    Cut out the tail like this...

    Now make a cut like this...can you already see the shape of the plane kids ? :-D


    This is what you should have in front of you right now...


    Now fold like this...


    ...and cut like this...


    If you fold it open it should look like this...


    Now take your tweesers and roll the nose into shape (...like this...:grin: )


    Now bend the little flaps in the middle...


    And glue them and the tail together ...


    Glue the nose as well and bend it in to shape with a pencil...


    Now it should look like this...


    Give the teenie weenie pilot (not included :-D ) some room with a toothpick...give it a nice paintjob...and you are ready to fly !!!


    A simple example of what is possible...:


    Just copy the image and build it yourself !


    Now go of and build army's and carriers and landingstrips and... :twisted:

    ( If the kids are still hanging on your trousers please note that I'm not responsible :-D )

    Please leave a comment because I'm very curious if you liked it or not :twisted:

    Also please post pictures of your Teenie Weenie Plane :grin:

    Excellent - the patterns would be great printed on the back of business cards.

    Cute! They would be cool hanging as a bunch like a mobile- looking like they were all dogfighting in any breeze.

    Good idea...

    I use iron wire and twist it around a desklight...
    The shadow you get on the wall is amazing:grin:

    I will make some pictures of that soon...

    This is a very good idea for little pieces!

    And I bet it'll take my little dwarfs at home a good time to spare!

    That is a pretty cool design Triop!

    Your talent for the tiny stuff is improving.

    Next thing we know, you will be doing bi-planes with rigging!:twisted:

    Keep up the nice work!
