1/16 118" Super Guppy Turbine B-377 scratch build

Hello everyone,
I want to brief there my scratch build of this very rare plane.
1/16 results in 118" span and my goal are 14 to 15 lbs auw. Electric powered, retracts, lights and, maybe, sound imitators (is a question of weight, because I already have some sound modules for turbine sound).
I have found two(!) RC Super Guppies builded before. One from USA, builded by Dan and Daren Savage (seen at Youtube) . Another one from Switzerland with ~78" span.
Searching for plans took some month of my life time The aircraft is very rare and the plans... there is no plans. Some tree views from web are very funny, but I can`t call it blueprint.
So I have to make my own plans with CAD. With thousands of pictures from www...

Is there anyone who have built SGT model before? Some accurate plans?
