Halloween Idea~DIY Airplane and Pilot

Happy Halloween everyone!
Here's a fun idea for Halloween...
 or that will keep you kiddo entertained for days! 

This look to me says...
Yes, I know my mom dresses me up as a lot of things but this time I approve.

Here she is... DM67 Vintage Fighter Plane.
Add a bomber jacket and some aviators and there you go... Salute!

The kid was crazy about the cockpit...

What a little paint and some gadgets, from an old broken fan, can do for a child's imagination. Unbelievable.

Once he was up and running that was it...

Flying through the chalkboard wall sky like no other... 

Honestly, this went on for quite some time. 


I love the, airplane sound, facial expressions!

Ok, so here you go. It's very simple.
1. Propellers, from a broken fan. : )
2. Drill
3. Glue Gun
4. Utility Knife
5. Long screw and washer
Drill into the center of the propeller

Cut the flaps from the box and an open space from the top.

Use your utility knife to create the shapes of the wings and the tailplane.

And piece together.

I used the glue gun to secure the wing flaps on the interior side on the plane. After some wear and tear on Doaks part I added wooden rods under the wings for extra support.

And paint as desired.

DM67 would like to say Happy Halloween to all of you out there...
Have fun and be safe!

Much love,
