Yes, two 1/4 -20 counter sunk bolts in the front, and two 10/24 bolts in the back.

Plans available for free download at www.supertrc.com Laser Cut kits are also available at the same site.

Here is a picture of the latest Seeker I built. This one sports a custom hollow composite tail and wing.

Appreciate it, I spent a lot of time designing it, drawing the plans, and making changes till I was happy with the flying characteristics.

I'm working on a new one now, trying to design the EASIST to assemble Quickie kit on the market, so it will have a standard tail, and be geared towards the 424 class.

They are glass/balsa/glass sandwiched parts bagged in a mold, then joined.

Search "Seeker wing Mold" and you'll find about 10 pages of my trials and tribulations of building wings. The wing in the picture was made in Australia by www.bigbruceracing.com using a similar mold (although his are two piece).

I have had much better success molding composite tails, there is also a thread on that somewhere in the Composites forums.

Take your pick. They are plans that I drew for my own use. The airplanes have glass fuselages and foam core wings. So some of the finer detai is not included. You will have to make some building decisions. The outline is correct. They are saved in Autocad 2000. I am not in the model airplane business so do not make parts for people.

I can email these to you if you wish.

Italian guys here seem to have information about Viper.

http://www.baronerosso.it/forum/aero...r-disegno.html

I did not read it all. At least there is sketches with dimensions and airfoil. Maybe enough to draw a plan.
