Hi Tariq,

The wing (or Sail) is made of so-called spinnaker nylon. It is normally used for kites. Something between 30 and 40g/mē should do.

The outer tubes are made of 8mm aluminium tube. All tubes mentioned have 1mm wall thickness.
The center tube is 12mm.
The upper struts are 8mm as well, the lower struts are 6mm.
The vertical front tube is 15mm, with 1,5mm wall thickness.

The motor is an OS 52 something with 8ccm.

Total weight is 2.5kg.

The tail tube is custom made from carbon fibre tubes. But I recommend using 15mm square tube.

When I have time at the weekend, I will make some more photos and check the dimensions for you.
