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...

Watch that wing tip tank!
I may be wrong, it looks like the smaller type that the SAAF did not have?
It should be the same size as the one fitted to the MB-326K.

Ja, cheers Jeffrey, hadn't spotted that. I'll make sure I get the correct size on. Means this thing now is just on 3m wingspan!
