Welcome to the RCU forums!

Most of the RC models powered by electricty have wing spans between 800 and 1200 mm.

There are smaller ones, which require micro gear, which tends to be a little more expensive.

Also more expensive in material and power items are the bigger models.

The series 400 airplanes have 28,400 mm of wing span, then your scaled model would be 35 to 23 times smaller.

Ok thanks!
I have decided to create it in the scale 1:50.
Anyone has any tips how to build the cabin?
Like the materials and tools.

You would probably be well served to pay at most $20 for a set of full sized plans.
Since you sound like you are quite unfamiliar with the process of building a model plane.

I've never built one from plans, but assume there are some plans available that give plenty of hints and tips.
Why not ask that question in a new message, and see what responses you get from the veterans here?

Ithink you are not really in the right place. You can consider this particular formum, Electric training, as flight school. Not really the place to be to ask how to build a plane from scratch. . There are many other forums on RC Universe much more suited to what you are doing. This link is to a building area. Much more suitable to your question.
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/forumid_121/tt.htm

There are others as well, so look around.
