  • Two toy airplanes

    After posting images of my toy airplanes almost a month ago, I finally came around to updating the plans for the planes at least halfway good enough to share them. My computer still doesn't want to let me use my Inkscape so the plans are made old style by drawing lines in a photo program and saving them as 16-color gifs: Print at 100 dpi or as a full 8 1/2 x 11 letter.

    Curtiss P-36 scale 1/48 for 1/4 in. craftwood

    Same aircraft scale 1/36 for 1/2 in. craftwood

    Alternative fuselages for scale 1/48 and 1/36

    Japanese Ki-27 to go up against the Curtiss early 1941 over China.... or in the skies of the kid's room on Saturday mornings. Scale 1/48 for 1/4 in. craftwood

    Same aircraft scale 1/36 for 1/2 in. craftwood

    Instructions are pretty straightforward: Cut the pieces, glue the landing gear into the wing. Squeeze the stabilizer into the slot in the fuselage and fasten with some glue. Drill hole in center of propeller and use a woodscrew or a dowel to fix it to the fuselage. Finally screw or glue the wings to the fuselage.Detail or paint to taste.

      Thank you Ennobee. Do you have a picture of the finished plane?

        They are in the 'work in progress' section where I originally.posted my build of the planes.

        The toys in the picture were the larger 1/36 scale versions build out of throwaway pallet wood that was more like 3/4 in. rather than the 1/2 in I designed the planes for. So I had to adjust the width of the slots by trial-and-error. However with only 4 slots, that was doable. It did not impact the overall look of the finished planes. So still wondering how a 'luxury' version in polished 1/2' white oak or mahogany would look like .

        As it is right now still too cold to go scrollsawing in the garage, yes, here in Texas, 40 degree is considered stay-indoors-unless-you-have-to-cold, my works in progress consist out of making lots of plans for toy airplanes. So here are three airplanes I did last week. Works in progress because I hope going out and cutting

          update. I just found out that instead the 1/36 plans for the Ki-27, I posted the 1/36 plans for the P-36 twice. Just uploaded the correct plans.

          Still working on a vector-based Inkscape or PDF version.... provided I can finally get my Inkscape to work again.

            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

            My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

            I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

            Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...

            Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.
