Futura Sport Jet Plans

Looked high and low for Futura plans after deciding it would be my next scratch build and could not find any. So after a few hours in sketchup I came up with some workable plans. I wanted to share my results here with anyone else that has more time or resources than I do to complete the build as both are very limited for me. I included a 3d template that helps form the curve in the shape of the intake/thrust upper decking. This design was originally created to build a 56" wingspan for 90mm edf using the 3/4" pink foam. To get a feel for the build I have shrunk the plans to 25% and am building a test model out of Dollar Tree Foam. This turns out to be a 14" wingspan. I am so pleased with how its taking shape that I am going to put an AR6400 brick in it and try to make it a micro pusher before starting on the large model. I am willing to share the sketchup file or resize for anyone that would be interested in building on a different scale.

Here everything is glued together with some minor sanding to shape and awaiting an AR6400 brick most likely located where an EDF fan will go on my full size 56" build. Without electronics, fuselage is weighing in at 17 grams.
