Thought I would start to document my build progress of my version of Curtis Suter's Red Merle VIII / SynerJ 4m F5J/ ALES glider.
Progress may be slow at times.

I am using Foamular 250 foam as that is what is locally and readily available.
Layup will be similiar to what has been discussed on the Curtis's main thread found here.
I will be using the Carboline available thru Hyper Flight for the skins. Specifically I will be using the Carboline SC59/3/45. I may use the SC39/2/45 for the outer panels, however I have not fully committed that. I would prefer the wings to be a little more forgiving over lighter weight.

This post will be updated as progress continues.
