twin edf 50 jet liner project and construction

hi friends,
i'm just little frenchie trying to make something with depron, quite alone in new caledonia, so all your advises are really welcome,
so here is my new project: a twin edf 50 jet liner .......
here are some pics of the big brother, it comes from a magazine, i like it!!!!
of course, there's no plan, i must improvise, mine should be about 90 cm span, so.........let's go
first, draw a simple plan........don't look at the wing profile's just a location for the moment, i haven't definate it for the moment
after the beginning of construction, .......i will post some new pics during construction if you are interested!just let me know..............
sorry for my bad english, i'm just a little frenchie wich want to share with others.....

Au contrare, Vince! I'm always interested in people's scratch-build projects.

about battery, it would certainly be some 2S etec 1200 or thunderpower 1300, with a pixie 20 for esc
for edf, it will be a pair of gws edf 50 bh
what do you think about?
any advices are really welcome..........

Last month a french magasin call RCM made a special number on depron plane. In this magasine there is an include plan for an Airbus A318 with two EDF GWS 50 and gws retracting wheels.

The plane loo realy nice and sould help you for the size and the weigth of a twin 50 jet liner.

first: about the kit..........let's see first if it flies................after we will see!
let's continue now construction.......
glue the nose.....and sand it.......'s just a coming my favorite
draw fastly a wing profile, don't ask me what is it..........i don't know, we just draw it "like that"...."scratch"
then, we have "cut " it with a hot wire...............and here it is...........i like that cause it's a bit magic...
it's cut in a sort of blue core, but in white.......... be continued!
now waiting for edf, they are on the way......

After burning up several EDF50's I've switched to the EDF55's. They are well worth the weight gain IMO.

Nice looking plane I really like it!!!
