heres the rest of em, im fairly happy with the 3mm depron wrapping exept that I kept bending it a bit much and warped the rear part of the structure it! I'll just attach the tail cone to it and spackle in the gaps....

Nice work. I like that style of building a fuselage. It makes a strong/lightweight fuselage.
The skin keeps the fuselage torsion free.
What are you projecting for weight, wing area and thrust?

Not sure about the weight but that fuse weighs just 9oz! I really need to figure out the motors I need though...

There is a thread in the EDF Forum on a cheap setup for the Hoaye 4" fans for up to 4kW/12s. If you can get an idea of how much wing area and weight you can figure out the power needs.
This thread has the 4" Hoaye towards the last few pages.

Beautiful work so far!, now i'm starting to think, i should have made my Concorde's fuselage the same way....

Not to put u down in anyway but to me ur nose and cockpit windows don't look as B777s on plans, they more look as B707s....

todays progress, the tail section was a total to make. I should have built this hot wire foam cutter first... its a little crooked, so more sanding is needed. 5 hours of labor with a tiny 4 inch coping saw
