Cutting Foam.

Layout of some of the fuselage parts. Also shown are the intended flight pack components. 4 channel.

The fuse and tail will be foam with some tisssue and paper.

The wings will be old-school balsa and tissue construction. Upper is 17.5 X 3.5, lower 13.5 X 2.75 inches. Total area roughly 98sq. "

The Olfa circle cutter was used to cut the wheels and the round firewall. Not a sales pitch but I highly recommend one of these if you're a scratch builder.

The foam that is painted blue is a test a sample. I used water based Acrylic poster paint and thinned it with alcohol.

I'm American but I live in Thailand so I'm somewhat limited with availability of hobby items considered standard back home. The paint technique is also going to be used on the wings. This is the first time I've tried this so bear with me through the testing phase.
