I am slowly getting all the data I need to design the beast to as close as 100% scale as I can. On the C-130 design I found that by designing a full scale model of the airframe and then scaling to what I would build is the best way for scale. I was lucky enough to get TO on the C-130, so drawing that 100% to scale using the Station Lines, Water Lines, and Bilge Lines I can get a airframe very close. But this takes a TON of time. My B-36 was a huge learning curve, as was my B-29. But now with the A-7 I am going to do this as close to scale as possible regardless the time invested. The B-36 is my biggest priority period!, but this design will get ramped up when I can't spend my free time on the 36.

Attached is a wing panel with SL/WL. I will pull all of this into CAD, then design the wing from this.

Thanks, DAG
