It results in a model of about 56" span and hopefully quite light.
The design was actually pulled together using DevFus for the Fuselage and Profili for the wing. This enabled me to get the shape of the formers exactly right without needing to guess or manually interpolate.
A very slender fuselage and surprisingly deep. Its not really obvious from the until the size of the fin and wing is considered.
A detailed build blog exists on the Model Flying Forum which covers many of the constructional aspects of this model and will not be repeat here
The output from Profili and DevFus were combined into a single file and edited using DraftSight. The parts were transferred to DXF and sent Dylan at LaserCraft for laser cutting - Liteply and Birch Ply wing ribs and fuselage formers
So rather than repeat the build blog, just a few progress photos here:
The fuel tank area and Firewall are assembled as a crutch and the fuselage built up around it
Fuselage construction is quite straightforward
Upper decking is 1/16" balsa sheet
Wing construction is traditional. Building tabs used to make sure the wing stays flat
Retracts are HK copies of e-Flite and a cheap MG996 servo used as the retract servo.
Leading edge sheeting added and a dry fit of the model - looking OK :)
Next bits were the tuned pipe tunnel, ailerons wing tips and rudder
The lower fuselage was crafted using lite ply formers and soft balsa sides
