This was a toy airplane I made my nephew a few years ago. This was one of my favorite projects because it was a birthday present. The unique thing about the plane is if you look closely at the pictures you can see the the lights in the corners of the wings and the switch in the middle of the plane. I bought the lights and a battery pack from a local electronics store and wired them in with a 12v flasher from a car so when the switch was turned on the lights would flash.

That’s just too cool!
Who did you build it for?
I just can’t imagine how any kid wouldn’t love it!
