These plans show the current design of the 1/2a hovercraft. The plans are free to download and copy for reference or as a guide to build your own hovercraft.
This is not an original design, I built this toy based on a photo that I came across. I had been planning to build a pull toy following the traditional balls in a cage inches design which I had read in a book. When I came across this design I was captivated by the intricate way the clacker blocks were mounted in between the wheels. The resemblance to the old-style push reel lawnmower, which I have and use, was another strong factor in my desire to build this toy.
In this page I share with you a large collection of free scroll saw fretwork patterns. I have carefully scanned them and transformed them into pdf files. These patterns were published long ago in Hobbies fretwork magazine. They are offered here with permission of the present Copyright holders, Hobbies Limited. Project #189.
This is a cute VW Beetle car project, that takes a little thought, I had problems making the first set of fenders, I think I can cut through some of the trial and error for you. For material, I used walnut for the body and ash for the fenders.
A quick alteration to the basic design lets you change the roadster into a sedan – that uses the same fenders.
Here is another great Norm Marshall toy – this one commemorating the P-40 airplane, a true WWII ACE.
Here is Norm Marshalls nifty, easy-to-build replica of Charles Lindberghs famous trans-Atlantic airplane!
Anyone who has ever owned a dachshund will be quick to tell you that they are clearly among the most affectionate and well-mannered of all breeds and our articulated friend is no exception. Originally made by the father of a Dayton, Ohio woman, it is sure to bring hours of fun to the little ones who are fortunate enough to find one under their tree this Holiday season!
This is a basically simple project for making a space shuttle except for making the groove for the tail section. Also, drilling the holes accurately is a little difficult without a drill press.
The design for this helicopter toy came from Doug Brown and his Wood-to-Wonderful charity. Helicopters are one of the more unusual vehicles for a toy but kids really like it.
