Cardboard Tube Biplane Set


Grab those cardboard tubes for another recycling project - the Cardboard Tube Biplane. These would great in a little (or not so little) boy's room.


Art and Craft Supplies

cardboard tubes
paint
scissors
marker
white or tacky glue
thin card
corrugated card
two bottletops
two beads
awl
skewers or toothpicks


Method

Cut out cardboard pieces as indicated on the printout. Use thin cardboard for the rudder and propeller. Use corrugated cardboard for the wings and front and back of the biplane.

For the front and back of the biplane, I cut the cardboard pieces larger, then trimmed them to tube size once they were stuck on.

Biplane pieces


Paint up your cardboard pieces. Paint bottletops black - these will be the wheels.

Mark out the cockpit


Make a cockpit - marking the tube as shown. Cut along the black lines and fold up the tabs for the windscreen and aviator's seat.

Cockpit


Glue the front and back circles to the tube to 'close' the plane up.

Wings


Line up the wings and glue them to the top and bottom of the tube as shown. Use a thick strip of glue down the middle of the plane.

Struts


Make two holes on each end of the top wing with an awl or other pointy tool. Push skewers through the holes and into the bottom wing. Trim skewers with scissors.

Turn the biplane upside down and glue the wheels to the bottom wing - under the tube - for strength.

Fold out the horizontal ends. Glue to top back of plane as shown.
