"Great plane"
jeremy.s.michels1
I usually build plastic models, but these can be a nice change every once in a while. The kit supplies you with everything you need, except for the glue. As far as putting the wood together, that's pretty easy. Getting the plastic pieces off their sheet can be tricky. The kit comes with tissue paper to go over the plane so it can be flown outside. In my opinion, the planes look just as good without the tissue as they do with. The best tools to have are a sharp knife, lots of sand paper, and Elmer's glue
