Default New Jet Blohm & Voss P-214 / P-212

So I decided to scratch build a Blohm & Voss P-214 / P-212 with a left over 50 mm EDF motor from an Alpha jet that had crashed. I drew the pictures from drawings I downloaded from www.luft46.com - I used the actual airfoil enlarged in thickness and about a 2" additional wingspan. Other than that, it is pretty close to the original. This was my first scratch built from foam airplane and I ordered a wire cutter to make the wing. The fuselage I made from blue foam and a small wire cutter from Michaels arts and crafts.

I used HiTech HS 55 servos and a spectrum park flier receiver. 1300/11.1 volt battery and 40 amp speed controller. Elevons only for control. I have not put this plane on a scale but it balanced perfectly right out of the gate.

The first flight was today into about a 7 mph wind... I threw it and it was on rails right from the start. I figured that it was going to crash or if not crash... fly great. Thankfully it flew great. The video is a bit ADHD but you get enough of the plane to get an idea of how well this plane flies.

Hello vulture. Am building a Blohm & Voss 215. How did you get the intake cut in the foam? Did you make a ply template?
