Start by finding a cheap source of glass fibre tape, a pallet load should just about do it. If you have a bit of cash I'd invest in a shoe glue producing factory, or to save time and effort buy a slow race horse and boil it down to get a good amount of goop. I would be looking for your electric setup in an old Prius or something similar, but way more powerful.
I could go on, this is fun. But i wont. Maybe the good people here could help you out with further details.

I'm impressed, that's the third full scale plane you're planning on building. A Cessna, a Vampire and now the Spit. Can't wait to see them fly.

You can tell it's a troll because nobody would waste time on a 1:1 Spit when there's a 1:1 EDF Antonov An-225 to be built first!

Hobbyking retracts of course...
