If I had it to do over again. I would have made the top longeron go from front to rear in one piece. Then If I really had to have doors that opened, I'd cut the longeron after the nose was brought together and additional structure was added.


ps. I like your use of foamboard.

Hi Paul

I updated the build on this... the foamboard idea was actually a mistake....just use light gain in weight...much more reliable/stronger

Hi...I can always upscale the plan to whatever size I want and create absolutely huge patterns for an extremely light airframe. I just use the multipage print feature on my printer and own a nice papercutter to trim two of the tabs off each page precisely and then glue stick them all together in minutes.
