I am new and i need help :/

#1
Hello,

Im new to scratch building and i want to build an Cessna 208.
I already made the wing (its the wing from a C337: https://www.flitetest.com/articles/cessna-skymaster )
but i dont know how to make plans for the fuselage. I know it has to be 70cm long since the wing is 89cm.
can someone help me with plans?
I have one big potato computer that cant run fancy programs like photoshop or Fusion 360 D:

thanks for your time,

Pjotr

Many people draw in Google Sketchup. That’s web based too so doesn’t need mega processing power. Pencil and ruler also needs no computer!
Most people start from a side profile view and use that to start creating the fuselage, most FT types have a 3 sided box fuselage with a top plate, with or without a turtle deck. Don’t forget to size it to fit your preferred power pod.
