Z-Tron Twin Stearing Shorts Skyvan
I have not got any Z-Tron stuff yet, but i do have wall foam, and LOTS of it, so i have been doing some building.
So far i have made a 30cm WS Garden Cub and two Thistle's.
I should have my Jiglet (Aeronutz) plan tomorow, so i am going to make some of them too.
Anyway, I have been thinking of a cool and original plane that i can make for the Twin Steering Z-Tron RX, and I think i am going to make a Shorts Skyvan, because, i LOVE the uglyness of it, and it should be REALLY easy to make, with all if its straight lines, and lack of curves.
I may also make some canberra's, as FF, as my mate will want them (he has TWO, YES TWO full size canberra cockpits, including the one that made the record time transatlantic flight, or somthing like that, in his garden, he and his dad are in the process of rebuilding them, and mabie adding a flight sim to one!!!)

The Skyvan is a nice plane but the wing has a very narrow chord if you build it to scale. No one will notice if you increase the chord a bit and it will help keep the wing loading low.
Hmmmm... where did I put that plan I had for the "flying mobile home".

The full size "sky-van" has a super-efficient ultra-narrow chord wing, BUT!!! please avoid in micro model form!!. It really is a place in which you would not like to be!!! ( I speak from humbling experience!!
Brutal but true advice i'm afraid!!!
