Balsacraft has been shut down kinda... Ripmax still sell the ARTF version of the Rapier in trans yellow.
Personaly i'd get your plan, thin down the wing and scratch build. much better thinner

Thank you
will see what I can do
I do have a set of plans for a Hustler that I might be able to use
for rib patterns.
I had modified the B Craft for landing gear .
Oh well start over
Again
Dan

http://www.ripmax.com/FS_Aircraft_ICSpKit.html
ummm seams Ripmax are still selling the kit, or at least the site says so.

Fast and aerobatic yet smooth and easy to fly delta in kit format.
High performance low drag delta planform
Fully built-up structure for light weight and strength
Moulded canopy, fuel tank and hardware package included

Couldn' that be termed as false advertising
