It's based on an unofficial fuselage design I am working on for Jack's Houston Hawk and also is related to the Sagitta approach (lite ply, nose hatch block, etc.) I free-handed the fin/rudder lines by eye, so it's not quite right, but the idea is there. It has a 9" root chord but even that is flexible--the wing bolt formers need to be located per the wing drillings so that is still in the works in this plan.

All comments/suggestions for improvement are welcome.

Looks like a Genie.

Here is my wood/CF/wood fuselage Yardbird.
