Not sure what exactly you are after but these two are some of the biggest I've come across while traveling the internet:

The WindRider queen bee can be purchased at WindRider.com I currently fly a WindRider 60'' Bee Scout. great flying wing, one of the smoothest flying wing Ive owend. I think the 100 inch queen bee is just a larger version of my bee scout.

Doesn't appear to be available.
How about asking http://www.foamwings.co.uk/Pages/Site/Default.asp to cut some cores for you.(Their in Scotland) If you google the wing it'll bring you back to a good build log on here,looks to have most of what you need to make your own version.

Why settle for a copy?Im sure the guys on here or the Nurflugal forum will give you all the design/build help you need.
Foam wings have a back catalogue,they may have foil/dimensions to suit,or input your own in the custom wing form.

Windrider is not available but my understanding is they make the pricey caipirinha which is tbs. Pricey because windrider had decent prices and was probably absorbed by them. There are a few kits available but balsa with covering. Over 100" might be fragile but sure looks beautiful. Do a search and you will find them.

LOL! Sorry if I sound a little anal guys, but calling a foam FW a 'kit' when my EasyStar ARF probably had twice as many parts to assemble before it was flyable is a joke!

Ming's Queen Bee is very nice, and being EPP, is very rugged. It breaks into three pieces, so is easy to transport. It is fairly complete with the bits needed to finish it.

Klingberg also made a 100 inch wing EPS foam wing with a balsa skin. Very nice, but very complicated to build, sliding CG, flush elevons, aerodynamically movable vertical stabilizers, etc. One is for sale in the classifieds as we speak.

But the biggest, is to order a 120 inch wing from McClain wing cores. I dunnow if he will make them anymore as when I got one, he ate it on the shipping, three big boxes, but it is the biggest wing I know of. You get EPS foam cores, and EPP foam leading edge material, and the rest is up to you.

Thank you very much for your information.
The reason we stop to make this huge FPV platform before is we have problem to ship this big flat box to oversea, but problem fixed now.
