|I have seen many threads on bulletin boards asking how to build a crate, and how to ship it, but precious little published data on how to do it.
I often see ads for planes that say you can pick them up, but they're too big to ship. Wrong! Nothing is too big to ship. You might be lazy and not want to do it, but you can ship any size plane relatively painlessly and with reasonable confidence that it will arrive intact. Following is a step-by-step guide to shipping a giant scale plane. Most of it should apply to
the majority of planes, though you'll have to improvise on securing the plane depending on
its construction and size.
