Model planes made from cans fly, but they don't land well
IPSWICH holiday-maker Rob Tyler loves the three-and-a-half months he spends at the Scarness Caravan Park each winter - a good time to relax and build a few model planes.
While each plane takes up to a dozen aluminium cans and six or seven hours to make, he says it's no production line.
The former Ipswich teacher has made a few hundred since retiring and word of mouth has seen them head off to all parts of Australia.
"People ask me if they fly," he laughs.
"They do but they won't land very well!"
