Who could blame you Jim. You can hardly read the arrow with the notation "Corro flutes" on the plans.

I hadnt thought about "wrapping" the skin around another airframe to get the rough shape....

Andy rolled his unbuilt ARF crunchie over some coroplast to get the outline. Made some templates to save. He's flown it without the canopy. The wing is a flyingfoam.com epp 48" span X12"X6" taper core covered in 2 layers of new stuff. Flies pretty good.

Do you have templates you can shoot images of?

plans in-progress

this what I have so far, please dont build with these as I have made several changes during construction. I should be finished with the autocad plans in a couple weeks.
I plan to make available one version of plans that must be plotted 1:1 scale, them maybe another version with key dimensions plotted on A4 letter paper, so an oke could create his own template directly onto a sheet of correx, if plotting is not an option......

wing construction is typical of the Mig, but I am using the SPAD corostang style spar, that will be "bent" during gluing into the wing....( see video on page 1)

bought the pine stick at the local Builders Warehouse, much thicker than needed, but I have snapped the spar on my Mig twice due to some rough handling.....

sorry Fuzzy, I grew up an inches kid,
I know the metric system is easier, but inches and fractions-of-an-inch are more intuitive for me.....

with autocad, when you open a new file, the program asks you if you want inches or metric.
All of the free corro plans that I have downloaded are all inches, as well

there might be a way to "dual dimension" in autocad, but I dont know how.....

Just a question:
Where would one easily get corroplast? And how hard is it to form?

Howzit GA92!?
Try the local signage shop....or the plastics/perspex dealers. The guys that make/print the real estate signboards.
It forms very easy if you keep the "grain/flutes" in mind.
