Default Nitro Planes 50cc Katana Rebuild

Hi everyone,

This is a long shot but figured I would take a stab at it. I recently crashed my NitroPlanec 50cc Katana. The wings and tail feathers were barely damaged. The fuselage also was not bad except for the area behind the canopy. I need to rebuild the area between the first two formers behind the canopy. The bottom of this area is strictly balsa sticks and should be easy to repair. The sides is what is going to be a challenge.

So my question. I was wondering if anyone, by chance, had plans for this plane or templates or anything

I realize this is an ARF and chances are slim but RC Universe has yet to let me down so, I thought I would give it a shot. I will posts pics of the plane shortly.

Thanks is advance,

Dan.

Yes, I know it is a long shot. I will start the rebuild next weekend so I figured I would give it a week to see if anyone could provide any assistance. I have never rebuilt a plane so anything will help.

I have rebuilt ARF crashes, and if you picked every little peace of the plane , you can assemble and replace any thing that you are not saticfied with. Just like a puzzle.
