Thanks, I do have draft dwgs that could help but they are only draft and could have errors or need improving. I'll see what I can put together today. If you have a preference of format, PDF, DWG/DXF, Sketchup or other I can see what l can do. It is painted and working on a new radio system installed. Learning curve thing. C Pack Twin installed.

I have a question? but for the fuselage how should I bend the depron? Do I have to cut or just cut the blue lines to be bent? it's a great project ... in a few days I start to build it ... and then I'll post the photos =)

I am not sure of the thickness of the Depron you are using. For depron I usually pressed down and scoured and cut if I have too, depending on the materials thickness. The problem with depron; if you bend it too sharp it will break, so cutting could be the best answer. In the US we use a different form board which is much more flexible and is covered with paper. A method I have used to form curves shapes is to use rolling stock, such as dowels or rolling pin. There, rolling the area to form the curve shape. The blue lines are bends. Please remember that these drawing are draft drawing therefore double check fitting and sizes. They were also drawn for being built from Adams foam board that is not available in some areas and Countries. Good luck to you and hope all will come together for you. I hope others on this forum who are more familiar with depron come forward and help you.
