Here's my old 1/2A SPAD delta. It was flown with a Norvel .061 but I'm sure you could make a Cox work. I don't have it anymore so I don't have a the dementions, it's just for some ideas.

Honestly, it didnt fly that well. It fell out at the top of loops pretty bad. Regular forward flight wasn't to bad though. I don't have any specs on the delta, it's long gone now. I would suggest getting a straight edge and a utility knife and start hacking, that's what I did. It has no airfoil, it's just a flat sheet of coroplast with wood mounts and the servos are wire tied on. I will say that you will need to keep the radio equipment as far forward as possiable for good balance and light as possiable.
