You are way more high tech than I can ever be. I look for the scale drawings, get my kid to enlarge them (non vectored) and paste the drawn profile patterns/cross sections on 1/8" luan then cut and use foam.

1/10 scale F-104G plug to be 100% composite.

Very complex if with intakes on fuse.

Carlos:

How big is your A-10 going to be (Wing span and length)? What size fans will you power it with?

Best of luck and thanks,
Ed

Made a 90mm composite A-10 from those same plans I believe, it looks great and flys great in fact I will be taking it up again this weekend. It's a lot of work scratch building but the end result is a great flying A-10. Good Luck.

I'm about 2/3rd of the way done on mine. Based off the same initial 2 sheet plan.
Twin 70MM EDF's but the Engine Nacelles are 4.25" in diameter (Built up around 2-liter soda bottles) so I can go up to 90mm EDF's. Length is 49" span is 52"
Today I'm actually converting barn door flaps to fowler flaps
