As long as someone builds it I'll be happy ...if anyone finds any errors let me know & I'll fix them.

Robin - I worked the canopy out while drawing the plan on the computer, first I drew the fuselage profile that I wanted. The I had to work out the extra foam needed to cover the curve - the rear section was easy as it has a semicircular profile at the top - simple mathematics to work that out......for the canopy & nose section I worked out the length needed by drawing lots of short 2mm lines around the former curve - & then straightened them to give me the extra length needed......it took about 5 mins per former - then its a case of altering the outline to match. If you look at the fuz on the plan it'll make more sense - it shows the outer line to cut to (with the extra curve allowance), then it also shows the final fuselage outline that I started from originally.

Hot glue should work fine - but you'll probably have less work time & hot fingers....not sure about weight differences either when compared to UHU POR.

It should scale up fine - I don't have a full pdf, but I can easily make one - even scale it up to a size that you specify if you want.....you will need to alter cutout sizes to match obviously though.

I was planning on making a larger one in the spring/summer with a built up wing....that might be a way forward.

OK I've added a single page file on the same page as the other files - that should do you.

You're supposed to be printing them - not copying data off the drawings thats why....trying to maintain control of my work.

There are no problems with the links or files - if you are still having issues, PM your email address & I will email them over.

I look forward to seeing some progress from some of the builds

No problems but when you resize them the security stuff has to be off..........I got it cranked up to a 42 inch wing span..........so the page is 36" wide and 74" long.

That should do it - plenty of power....it'll be interesting to see what sort of weight it'll come out at.
