I received the prototype toy today... it was spooky. I thought to myself, "I remember it being bigger." I suppose to a 5-year old it was huge.

I sat down and started measuring the airframe. Then, I began laying out a top view drawing. I can tell that the big challenge will be the main fuselage. The compound contours cry out for a vacuum molded shell but, I don't have the equipment. I could "make do" using the luan plywood, George Foreman grilling machine, and shop vac... and I may yet.

I think I will try a foam fuselage using frames, stringers and skin. If that doesn't work, I'll use a balsa frame and cover it.
