It was hard to print pictures in scale from sketchup, I used "print prewiew" to see if the figure was on a single page or not....

It's a bit longer (160cm vs. 130cm), a bit larger wingspan (140cm vs. 120cm) - mostly because it will be heavier (1470grams vs. 720grams). I will cut it in pieces and then glue all parts together to make the build as easy as possible. I hope to start building next weekend

I have buildt one plane ever, a FF-supernova from rcfoamfighters and after that plane was totaled, I decided to build a plane from skratch.
