Simply slot together the cardboard parts to create your very own epic Sidecar Plane from the classic Wallace & Gromit animation, ‘A Close Shave!’ Watch it cleverly transform from Sidecar to Plane, then back again!

Everything you need is provided in the kit – simply follow the instructions: press out the pre-cut parts, build, play and display. There’s no glue, no mess, no fuss!

24cm in length once built, you’ll be amazed at the intricate detail found inside this innovative Sidecar Plane. Wires, cables, rivets and more. By ‘eck, it’s smashing!

The clever mechanics are cracking fun too. Pull the tailplane to make the wings fly out sideways! Pull the front of the plane for the porridge gun to pop-up!

Includes pop-out wings, porridge cannon, and a display stand. Plus, cut out a Wallace & Gromit postcard for an added touch of fun.

Made using 100% sustainable cardboard and paper, Build Your Own’s Wallace & Gromit Sidecar Plane is not only fun and engaging to play with, but also eco-friendly.

Suitable for age 10 years – 100! Best enjoyed as a family experience.
