Default 82" Brian Taylor Plans /Confusion ?

Need some help please received the plans for a potential winter build for an 82" Brian Taylor plans . New to scratch building but not new to building at all .
My concern is I can see the wing ribs, and most of the fuse formers and so on and the rear box frame .
What I cant see is the forward box frame that appears to be assumed on the plans?
Now a forward box structure can be made by assuming the frame from the open space shown in the fuse formers but there is not real demensions, wood specs etc .
Same with the very front fuse motor mount area , no real details on the front end ?
Purchased on ebay from a reliable highly rated seller so I know there real but they seem to leave a lot of details out .
I think I could build a corsair easier from Top Flight kit ---part list diagram lol, from what I have seen that has more details on all the parts of the plane .

Hi LDM
What plan it is? Corsair or Spitfire? I assume it will be Corsair based on the rear box reference.
BT often makes drawings of complicated assemblies extra on a plan.
There are details on each former cross section as far as I remember.
I would suggest to see John Ranson build on RCSB for a reference.
Good luck
Vik

Telling us what plan it is might get you some more replies. There's lots of BT build threads on RCScalebuilder, so a trawl through there might get you the information you seek.

Lou,

The forward portion of the fuselage box structure is made up from 1/4" balsa with 1/4" balsa doublers and triplers. The overall perimeter of the main 1/4" balsa sides are indicated with hatching as noted on the side view of the plan. I built up a Taylor fuselage and wing center section to be used as a plug and would be glad to answer any specific questions you might have if I am able to do so. You can send me a private email or post your questions right here, whichever you prefer.

PS - I have some news regarding the P-40 landing gear parts as well and I will send you an email just a soon as I find the time to breathe! Been VERY busy here the last week or so.
