I got most of the measurements done and I am off to cutting foam I am Starting at The tail feathers with this build and working forwards, I wanted to get the hard stuff out of the way first I am Using a Lot of my scrap 9mm Foam for the bottom part of the Jet, I tape a hinge with packing tape on one side of the foam, epoxy the seam, then wipe any execs epoxy off and put some packing tape on top, that makes for a very clean joint, the 9mm foam will be the wings, stabilizer, rudder assy. and bottom of the fuselage, the sides of the fuselage will be balsa, 6 and 2 mm Depron, here are a few pics, Take care, Chellie
