This is a fairly tall order. What is your time horizon?

Here's a good site for general building information:
http://www.airfieldmodels.com/

Note in particular "Model Airplane Math and Design Theory"

Go foam.

Check out the Scratchbuilt Foamies section here. They'll get you pointed the right direction.

A scratchbuuilt foamie trainer would be the best choice for this I think. That would be something like the Blu Baby 33. This thread has a detailed build description for a that plane (or you can just cut the parts from the BB 33 plans):

The BB 33 plans and thread are here:
