Not a Plane.. BUT It's Close

So i started making an air boat (swamp buggy) out of adams form board and here we go 


first i cut out the long pieces for the main frame 20"x2"

then i cut out the width wise pieces which are from a 10"x2" Piece 

then i used a hot glue gun to glue everthing together and made a few adjustments 

sorry for the lack of pictures i did the rest of the manufacturing in school as a tech design project 

and this is the finished product wrapped in the real duct tape (aluminum tape)

NOTE: unlike the foamies where you leave the paper on you MUST take the paper off of the foam for these boats Eg. this is the Mk 2 and on the Mk 1 i learned the hard way and kept the paper on and it kind of fell arpart in the middle of my pond

This is pretty cool! Someone built one that featured a glow engine, and it had so much power! Will it run up on grass? Cool build man!
