The first lego set I can remember having was the #430 Biplane. I do not ever recall making anything with the 16 pieces (wow, did they really make a set that only included 16 pieces?) other than the basic biplane model.
Today, at lunch, I decided to see what else I could make from the 16 pieces included in this vintage set.
This is the original 430 Biplane set (All 16 pieces). As you can see in the image it orginally sold at a store called "Bargain Town" for $1.79. Incidentally, many of the pieces in this particular set had the words "patent pending" imprinted on them during the molding process.
