Help!
Scratch Swift S1 Foam/Balsa. (Image Resize Swift)

Is there anybody who could resize this image for me please?
This is one sweet looking bird, and I wouldn't mind having a crack at building her in 1/10th scale if anybody can help...
I have attached the images if anybody want's to have a go.....

I was going to go 1/10th but I just managed to up scale the picture on paint, and it came out to the exact width as my piece of foam, kind of a coincidence I don't know, but I am going to stick with it for now, Slightly larger than 1/10th but less waste on the foam... Fingers crossed...
But it has automatically been resized back again for the forum lol..

i also did the other pics but they are to large to post because I had to increase the image size by 680|% on the other pic and forgot to lower the dpi.

I think I have something usable here, going to try a few different combos, and just hope the printer holds out under all the stress...
I have seen this bird flying on a few youtube videos, she is very graceful, and has really got some moves, I will see if I can find a few of the videos and I will post them up here....

Oh yes, here's a good vid, apart from the music, why do they always put dodgy music on these vids?

OK couldn't wait to get started on this, so this is how far I got today.
Still in two minds whether to cover this in 3mm depron or balsa, any suggestions?
Still a bit of work to do....

Foam is prob the easiest solution but I say balsa just because I think it will need more spars and stiffeners if you go with foam. Balsa is stronger and will help get rid of flutter from speed passes and such. at least I would expect.
or you could cover in foam and glass it.
