Making Patterns from drawings for scratch built planes

I don't know if anyone has ever tried this, but I was monkeying around with Photoshop and loaded a pdf manual for the Corsair kit from Top Flite.

I created canvases exactly the same as the Balsa and plywood dimensions in the book, and then scaled the individual drawings to the material size.

Looks ok, but will it fly? Any ideas? Anyone ever try this?

I'll upload a couple of samples for you to see.
