My son’s kindergarten class asked for a toy plane. They have an event celebrating one of the pioneering non-stop flight from the USA to Europe (Lithuania) by two American-Lithuanian pilots Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas.

I tried to make this plane as similar to the original as my skills allowed. There is a problem: there is no place I can buy toy wooden wheels in my country.

More info about the actual plane, the flight and it’s pilots are here:

That is great. My son wouldn’t play with the plane I built him until it had landing gear

Good plane, i built one without landing gear, and one with. The first didnt have it because the minute any adult man picked it up, they would immediately start making plane and machine gun sounds and flying it around doing strafing runs. Theyre made to be played with, and to play with it, the landing gear is up!

Anyhoo, there are places on the web that you can get those wheels for cheap if you buy a bunch of them.
