I'm a bit confused.

I'm planning on building a bostonian, I have build a few of them a lot of years ago. But know I'm finding all kind different rules. 7 grams minimum, 14 gram minimum, doublesided covering, singlesided covering, and so on.

I'm living in the Netherlands, so in Europe. When possible I will try to compete with the model in England or The Netherlands and maybe in other European countries. I don't want to fly the model outdoors so I need the indoor rules.

Can anyone help me?

Here's a start. I don't think there are any official rules in UK but I don't know. Someone will.

This has been discussed from time to time, and as far as I can tell Bill's right; there doesn't seem to be a definitive set of rules in this country. The 'Impington rules' get mentioned a lot and have been used at various comps I think, including for the Bostonian contest at the Indoor Scale Nats a couple of years ago. Unfortunately I can't find a working link to the Impington rules but I expect Russ or someone else can help.
Here is another set of rules from the Clayton website: http://www.creativesweb.co.uk/Clayton/news3.html
I think these are probably fairly standard regarding the essential dimensions/characteristics and the 14g weight limit, although the  6" plastic prop rule was apparently a Clayton addition.

Thanks guys,

When I google the rules for Bostonian the following link comes up http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/ff_in_bostonian_rules.htm. That's why I'm confused. I'm going to think about what to do. Maybe I should just build the model for fun flying only instead of competing in a contest that's rarely held.
