I started some drawings for a 48" Consolidated Fleet biplane, made mostly from 1/4" BluCor (FFF) with just a bit of 1/2" pink foam for extra strength from the firewall to the cockpit area, and for the empennage. There's not a whole lot of structure, so she should have a very light wingloading and will probably require cross-rigging on the wings to prevent bending and twisting. I'll use this plane as a testbed before I begin on the slightly larger P-6E Hawk I have planned. The constant chord wings should be a snap to make, and the fuselage is essentially a box-frame with a few creases to simulate the longerons.
