FROG Build off - 2012 Raven x2

I finally cleared away the Christmas decorations and made some space on the dining table to set out my building board.

The object of the exercise is to get started on the Raven. I had already upscaled the plan to 200% but hadn't really studied it much, other than to see it's a relatively simple build, even the conversion from rubber power to RC electric should be ok.

The stock plan primarily uses 1/16th balsa for the build. I know that many would use 1/8 when building at 200%, but I think that will be over the top and finish up too heavy for my liking.

So, I had a look in the balsa box and found I had a couple of sheets of medium 3/32 that were going spare. Decision made. As I was down sizing the thicness, I left out the 'holes' from the fuse sides, cutting only the slots to accept the formers.
