I started  shapeing the foam for this six months ago and  now have decided to restart it. I plan to finsh the fuz this week next week at the latest. I am  then  going to make the wings , canopy and tail as a kit and save it just in case I move house and run out of time  then build it later.I was going to make it a DG 100 but may make it a DG 200 or 202 17 m[ATTACH]Name: IMG_20140608_174306.jpg

Description: I have just started two new builds; a windex motor glider and a jantar 1 . I reproduced and enlarged the image from the internet by using a data projector and then projected the image on to paper and then traced the image [ATTACH] 611581[/ATTACH] I have carved the fuselages from space foam. this foam is stronger than polystyrene and you can cut it with a hot wire and bandsaw Name: windex 011.jpg

Description: I intend to cover with 130 and 200 gm cloth and epoxy with carbon reinforcements.
The janar will be lost foam but the windex will still keep most of the foam, a bit like a large foamy . The windex span is 4.1 and the janar is 4.8 metres.
