Let your imagination go and be overwhelmed!

Free plans.

The "American Boy" will be happy with a Cox reed engine on it as a first plane. Balsa can come from the local craft store and be sanded to the airfoil shape by using guides such as rod or tubing or dowel of the correct size to sand to. (do this outside, it is messy) Tape can also be used as sanding guides.

You can decorate with colored markers then seal with solvent based polyurethane varnish. Alternately you can use enamel spray paint. Both these methods get heavy very quickly, so be sparing with the finish, and sand it very well between coats. The 14 day cure time for enamel is the hardest part!

Don't fret about needing expensive glue either (at least with wood).  White school glue is actually pretty good.  Yellow carpenter's glue is a little better, mostly due to having more moisture resistance.  Fast acting and smelly glues like epoxy and CA are not needed during construction, although slow epoxy is best for motor mounts.  

Fast acting glues such as 5 minute epoxy and CA with kicker are excellent for field repairs and should be remembered.
