In post #10 ( above ) I explained how to print the plans ( pdf file ) , to make a poster sized set of plans from which you make the templates . Then the templates will give you the correct dimensions/proportions for the parts to trace onto the foam sheets . Also in post #10 are photos showing what the templates and foam pieces should look like . Let me know if you need more detailed help .

When you open the plans (pdf file) on Adobe Reader , it should look like this on your computer screen ( photo below ) :

Thanks I had taken the print and attached them(just with removable tapes) actually I wanted to know as they'll act as template but for some smooth referencing if I need to mark or check any dimension I wanted to know any board with scale or any fixed scale that can be used?

Cool !

When you get the electronics , don't connect anything unless you are 100% sure it's being done correctly . It would be a shame to burn something up before you ever get to fly your plane !
