I'd build a laser cut kit first if I were you like a Four Star 40 or similar.

Otherwise you are going to have to ask how to do each step on here

The Mid Star will be great

The Moonraker is not terribly sophisticated with the big problem being the swept wing.

M:

Did I ever send you pictures of the Moonraker before its untimely demise? If not, let me know and I will send them to you. I've recently decided that I want to look into building another Moonraker, but I'd really like to have a 60 size model rather than the typical 40. I'm not sure h[img][/img]ow to do the conversion of the 40 plans, however.

By the way, another nice airplane that I'd like to build is a Taurus designed by Kazmirski.

If you have 40 Moon Raker plans just blow them up to 60 size Kaos at Kinko's or blueprint store
