Hello, my name is Patricia, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a triplane. Now a triplane is an old fashioned plane that has three wings stacked on top of each other. You'll see it usually at air shows, in old movies. But here I'm drawing the propeller and the plane itself, and let's see here, usually the tail. We're going to put a little star on the back of the tail. And then you can put a person here somewhere, and then we have the wheels. This is a very simple triplane, but I have to tell ya, this is what they look like back in the olden days, and people would fly these. I don't know how safe they were, but I'm sure they were lots of fun. Okay, now we have the wings, so here's one, which is right above the craft, and then you have another one, you know what, lets do these in white so you can really see them against the plane. Okay, so we have the bottom wing, which the craft sits upon, see here, and then you have a wing above it, and then above that you have your third wing. And when people use to do their tricks they would usually do tricks on the top wing or in between this wing and the top wing. Alright, and then they're held together by some rods, here there's two and then two more here. And you don't need any right here, because, remember, you have these two attached to the plane, this is a solid part right here. And here is the driver, put him right there. And you might have the name of the plane, we'll say, this one is "go fast". Alright, and this guy is not flying yet so we'll give him some ground. And there you go, there's your triplane. Enjoy.
