Yes, yes, yes...

Make?.. Type?... size?...

I think you have a foot in the aircraft camp Meti, those holes are the sign of weight saving.. possibly gliders?

Very very impressive.

I studied aircraft design at university that's why so many holes in the frames and yes it is weight saving.

Here is a picture of layout and motor

Cutting is manual and very traditional:
- draw frames on plywood
- drill holes
- cut with arch saw
- sanding
