Previously I'd done some prep work for this build by printing and taping together the plan and making some templates. Yesterday I glued up some 1/4 sheet wood to make up the wing. I also cut and drilled the motor firewall. Note that I enlarged the firewall to be able to use this motor mount. This will give me the ability to easily add shims to modify the thrust line as needed. I altered the front of the fuselage to match the larger firewall. This won't be a totally accurate build but I'm going for the spirit of the design.
The radio equipment is an odd assortment of available batteries and servos. 2.4 Ghz is an option but for now I'm starting with an old 72 Mhz receiver.
