So... While I wait for the last few bits to arrive from China to finish the Bucc, I've started planning this (Can't have Depron gathering dust, must turn it into slopies!). I'm going to build it from glassed Depron using mostly the same method as the Bucc.

All my scratch builds start off by finding decent three views and wing sections online and then attacking them with Photoshop till I have everything sized, datum'd and incidence'd. A little tip for people that need to print large plans on A4 and glue them together: Save as a PDF and use Acrobat Reader's tile print function. much easier than finding a tile printing app...

This Imp will be in the orange and blue Silver Falcons colours. Busy printing now...

This looks great Monique....another slope glider I assume!  This will look great in the air.  I shall follow this build closely.

A Mammoth I suggest rather than beastie?  But again a rather impressive project. Looking forward to another revealing topic!

Been working on this over the weekend. Marking and cutting out formers and bits.

I've glued all the top formers now, I'm building it in top and bottom halves. Don't want any bananas creeping in. Where the fus breaks will be faced with 3mm liteply on each end with dowels running into tubes for alignment and securing.
