Normally fuselage length is tip of the spinner to the back of the rudder.

Thanks. I crashed my 72 inch trainer and what was left from the crash is the fuselage wing saddle structure only and left side wing with minimal damage. I also have plane picture and dimensions. Very interesting project with no plans.

Are you really going to rebuild that model? A few before and after photos would be nice.

I am at the final stage of joining the flaps and ailerons surfaces to the wing and the built will be complete. I will post pics of the initial crashed pieces I started the build with and the plane now.
Cheers

I am looking forward to your photos.
A 6ft trainer? A Sedona maybe?

Thanks for your interest. I will post pics in a day or two as I am now left with engine mount and throttle link and probably some decals stickers .
Cheers.

Good evening. the project of re-building my mid-aired crashed trainer plane is now finished. Over 3 months work ,$160 NZ materials and use of parts from other crashed planes. I used whatever films I had to cover the plane thus it is a bit unconventional !
Pics of crashed parts: almost good 1/2 wing and fuse saddle that I started with and the final product are attached. Cheers
WS 74 inches
Fuse 1550 mm

Well, the result is not disappointing at all. Nice to be able to do that re-build on the basis of those few remnants.
And that color scheme on a trainer will be to your advantage.

Thanks a lot Rijoli . The plane did encounter a mid air crash and I must add that I was flying the circuit and the other big plane came vertical from below . He was training on 3d maneuvers !
