From wingtip to wingtip.....errr...ummm.. rotor housing to rotor housing across the vehicle.......Im expecting about 8 feet wide.
The home depot buckets alone are 12" wide....so those alone are 2 feet.

Because of the size, I may need to hide a couple of extra fan units inside the "wing-pylons" just for lift. Wont know till I get the thing framed up and the electronics installed. I wont be covering it or adding ANY scale shapes and details until Ive got the thing actually capable of flying. I should have a rough fuse section and center wing areas somewhat done in maybe 2 weeks. I'll then need to add the anhedral wingtips plus the homer buckets with motors and build out a dual boom tail section.

Before even trying to test fly the basic setup, Ill be setting up a much smaller y-frame tricopter but with ducted fans to test control ability with tilting the forward two ducts.

I do have the anhedral wingtips framed up now.
