Set up the base of the Lego airplane. Position several flat Lego pieces the way they are laid out in the photograph. You will need three 2x8-dimpled Lego pieces, two 1x8 Lego pieces, a 2x2 square and a 2x4 rectangle.
Secure the base of the Lego airplane with more flat Lego pieces. Position them on top of the base of the Lego airplane the way you see in the photograph. Notice that the second layer is positioned one dimpled row back of the row below it. This gives the Lego airplane a sloped-back aerodynamic look. Thin and flat Lego pieces hold the wings together at the ends. Use 1x4-dimpled pieces or several 1x2s.
Turn the Lego airplane over. Add wheels to the front and the wings. Position them as you see in the photograph. Create another layer of flat Legos that extend one dimpled row forward of the layer above it.
You can build an airplane out of Legos using several flat pieces. These are among the most common types of Legos. They are found in virtually every Lego set. Building a Lego airplane is therefore both easy and cool.
