Scale designing in solidworks DH110

Help me out please guys i dont know where to start. i have some experience with solidworks. have designed a number of parts and a few aircraft from scratch but all were own designs so i didnt need a scale outline.

How does everyone do it? trace a 3 view? trace separate parts of a 3 view?

I want to get stuck in but im stumped

Hi twchdyn,
Get a 3-view and trace the top and side views. carefully match them up to each other and away you go. Take a look at how I did my mini fan F-15C. There's also a couple of how-to threads in the Builders Workshop and Scale model forums.
