F16XL Left Wing Assembly 1 (0 min 16 sec)

This is a jet ive working on for a while now, the plan originally came from iphan here on rcgroups, who has kindly allowed me to modify it for my own needs.
So far i have put the plan into cad, and made parts of all the bits from the plan. enlarged it slighty and ended up with what you see below. i realise some of the parts look a little square, but i have modeled it in solidworks, which isnt the best program for this. but its what i know.

Iphans plan was originally for balsa and a speed 400, and a pivoting wing for roll control. I believe,several people have built it, and modded it for ducted fan, I fancied building a depron version, with conventional tailerons, although i may add ailerons as well.
The plan is to use 2mm depron for the skins and 3mm depron for the bulkheads, with a bit of carbon and a little balsa, wether this will work I have no idea. Ive scaled the plans to fit a 2212.06 motor in the exhaust cone.
Wingspan - 613mm
Length - 942mm
