Sparkling biplane for dad

Hanna loves making things for her dad. She likes to give him things that she decorated with paint and writing. He always really appreciates these gifts.

Good that mum recently bought this craft set. A 3D puzzle from mara by Marabu. The pieces are assembled without any glue, which is great.

Hanna’s dad loves models, so this pretty biplane is ideal for him. She can use the intense, vivid water-based mara craft paints in his favourite colours red and blue to paint the aeroplane made of FSC-certified wood.

Hanna’s dad provided some support for assembling the 25 wooden parts, though. And he was overjoyed: his very own aeroplane! 😉


  • Press the individual parts from the wooden board. Then push together according to the instructions.
  • Squeeze the craft paint from the containers onto a mixing palette. The creamy paint is ready to use and can simply be applied with the brush. Keep a kitchen roll and a cup of water ready. Cover the table to protect it from the paint.
  • Paint the biplane as desired. Always apply a rich, even layer of paint. Allow to dry thoroughly, done!
  • Tipp: Um auch schwer zugängliche Stellen zu erreichen, können die Bauteile bereits vor dem Zusammenstecken bemalt werden.
    Tip: The parts can be painted before assembly to make it easier to paint hard-to-reach areas.
