We’re a bit different than all of the other can craft enthusiasts on the web. Let me start out by saying that. Our plans and built models are the product of hours of design on both computer and in the workshop.
We use materials that are easy to find and make your models stronger and better looking. Everyday items such as bamboo skewers, Craft foam, aluminum sheeting from the hardware store, duct tape, and aluminum foil tape will go a long way to making that perfect soda or beer can aircraft model.

We understand that can craft enthusiasts shopping on our website have kids or are buying plans to build their own models to sell at craft sales, flea markets and swap meets. So as a result, we design them to be rugged to withstand all the poking and prodding they’re going to receive along with all of the attention they’ll get. We’ve got kids too and we’ve spent long days at the rec center and we understand that you need a well-built product withstand the wear and tear of curious kids and day long craft sales.
So that’s why we build and design our soda can aircraft the way we do. They’re going to get a lot of attention and the last thing you want is a rolled wing with a big dent in it or a worse yet, the fuselage. Once that happens, you might as well retire it, right?
