Herk, the total span will be about 2m, and the next revision of the plans I do, I'll throw in some dimensions. As the note on the pdf says, they are just beta drawings and some of this build I'v been making it up as I go along... so there's that.

Bruce and Herk, good input and forewarning of hindsight. CF tow down the fuse it is. (now I have something to do with the model other than look at it, waiting for my wood to show up, yea!) The fuse, as well as the wings are going to be covered with Skyloft on top of that. Don't know if any of you have seen it, but I would say that it's stronger than fiberglass or silk of the same weight. It will be the first time I have used it so I can't say for sure just how well it will perform, but from what I have read and after handling the material, I have hopes for it.

Oh, and speaking of R/E planks, I'v been watching a Skybench short kit Windlord build thread going on over in the Aircraft - Sailplanes Thermal forum.
