I’ll save making these for myself  until I dig out Donald Featherstone’s book on Air War Games again.

These would make reasonably simple (15mm Figure compatible?) biplanes and you could also use curved edge lollipop sticks for a different look to the planes.

Simple materials and clear instructions 

Raiding the craft store, you should be able to knock up a quick dogfight squadron of these clothespin biplanes using normal or even miniature sized wooden clothes pegs.

They might need some simple undercarriage or wheels block to land them safely.

Snoopy and the triplane  of the Red Baron anyone?
