Thanks Alex, your design is perfect. I was just wondering if this was done via software but its a case of using a slightly longer airfoil and then just trimming it, them im good:-)

Hi Alex,
I want to ask you if you could provide a 3D model of the cab and engine cover in .step format?
Thank you.

Hi Dave,
I converted the cowl and canopy to .step format, you can find them here:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nI...62z4iLboSL5-e2

The cowl is approx. 5mm longer than needed in the nose area so it can be either cut straight for the contra unit or with 2-3 degrees right thrust. You can also use different spinner sizes (83-89mm). The cowl and fuselage balsa structure are overlapping on a distance of 15mm.
The canopy is approx. 5mm larger where it meets the fuselage to compensate for any errors during the assembly of the fuselage balsa structure. It needs some trimming to fit the fuselage perfectly before the canopy frame is attached.

In order to have complete building instructions, i will add some CAD images to illustrate what is left to do to finish the airframe.
Today's update shows the motor mount and cowl attachment to the fuselage. Since i didn't get that far with my Vortex build, i highly recommend reading Isaac Najary's Fantasista build thread. There are some similarities for the cowl and motor mount assembly:
