Thanks for the take out box idea.
If I use a center section on the top wing to match the fuselage width it will come up to the 14 inch span
The round plates are thinner and look perfect for tail feathers.
Either one will have to be spliced for fuselage length.

looking at carbon fiber rod for struts and heavy black thread for bracing.

Bummed some take out boxes from the store deli so tonight will do some cutting
of parts and see how it looks.

Thanks for the links
This is extremely hand info.

Are there any articles or info on working this stuff?
Did a site search on Depron and nothing came up.

Who did you order your depron from?

Have found BDS site. would be nice to be able to acquire wall foam in the U.S.

Thanks everyone
I feel better about success with this project now and will possibly have many
silly questions.

The LHS now days seem to be more like a toy store, no building required
The do have some carbon rods and super glue so not a totally wasted 60 mile trip. No Balsa, Ply, spruce of foam!
