OK .... sit back Guys and Gals .... try this :

Taking overall outline of the PKJ and materials we have at hand.

Just thinking onto keyboard ... OK ....

Thin ply horizontal plate shaped as the central fuselage of PKJ ... with tongues to slot depron wings to ... formers in depron to create a slab side fuselage, top and bottom. Cut-outs in ply for servos, ESC, battery etc. Motor mounted as beam of the ply ...

Wings to be depron folded to same as PKJ and shape.

Using the ply as the main frame of the model gets rid of the traditional PKJ weakness at forward of wing and across in front of motor. Ply gives definite anchor to all the bits and pieces - ESC / battery etc.
Depron keeps weight down but is good to form all the other parts ..
Slab-side fuselage to make construction easy ... just tapered into nose. Flat bottom for belly landing etc.
No need for plastic canopy - form shape in depron sections.

My idea is to create a near PKJ that standardises our Need for Speed machine design ...

Any ideas ? Comments ?
