Default Bugatti 100p Racer

After seeing a video on the history of the plane and it's designer Louis DeMonge and the current project to build and fly this amazing plane I was hooked. So this is my next scratch-build project.

Development continues. Brought a hi-res jpeg of the fuse and wing plan into my ACAD and scaled the plane to 47" long with a 51" wingspan then began locating a motor and bulkheads.
Still exploring a carved fuse but also still looking at a faceted one.
