In the wild blue yonder...

Karen Bingham needs an airplane (any kind) for her son.  It had never crossed my mind to punch a plane but........ well, why not?
Here's a parts list:
Main plane sections - wide ovals
Wings - small ovals flat on bottom
Tail - large oval trimmed flat on top and small curve cut in with scissors, piece of a small oval on the tail
Engines - 1/2 circle with lines drawn by hand, 3/4 inch circle
Windows Eyes - pieces of work window
Nose Tip - 1/2 inch circle
Stripe - word window punched on edge of paper to get tiny strip
Eye brows - slot
white piece at top of eyes - word window offset from word window hole

Outline your pieces in black to define your plane sections.  I guess you could leave off the "face" elements if you need a more serious looking plane.
