Default BV 138 project

I recieved Bruno schmalzgruber's plans for a beautiful Blohm and Voss BV 138 this week. I haven't been able to find any build threads on this project. Have any of you built the ole flying cog in the past? I'd love to talk to someone who has built from these plans in particular but any pictures/ info would be appreciated.

1/9 she'll be a big girl 9 1/2 ft. I've been working with adobe illustrater to lay out parts for laser cutting. (no parts pattern, peices just scattered through plans)selecting balsa grains, and translating instructions. Soo nothing too exciting to report just yet. Ilike gathering lots of pics/info before i start tho, gets me excited, so if you have any suggestions let me know

I have been tempted to build one of these for awhile. Got any photos to the plans and a link for where to get them?
