1:24 TaylorCraft Taildragger . A Diorama - Maybe ?
Here's one for you scratch builders who dabble in cars too .
Think of this A couple of nice figures and a sparkling clean TaylorCraft sitting on the tarmac , doors open while the bags for the weekend are put in the plane , for flight to parts unknown .
There are papermodels out there in this scale . Not just the Taylorcraft . They have interiors too . Now , using them for patterns you could build one just as easy .
The engine and prop wouldn't be that hard to make and the Prop could be , in this case , very thin slices of wood stained and clearcoated .
You could use some found wheels with smooth donut type tires and there you go . What I have found is this .You use .010 Exclusively .Why ? well you can make the braces and spars out of heavier plastic .
I use the .010 because this reacts to folds and bends the same way as heavy card . If it cracks , you can put a strip inside the corner to repair that . So you can still do it .
I learned something doing my TaylorCraft . If you take a small beaded head burnishing tool and score the fold line , it , handled carefully , not break .
I recommend the TaylorCraft if you can find one , or another of the larger scale paper planes .It can be a fun challenge with great results . Are you game ? T.B.
