Hi Everybody -
Well this is where I am at. I was able to convert the JPG file into a DXF file and import it into my Solid Edge CAD program. It will take time & energy, but I think I'll be able to create a fairly decent scale model of the MB.5

Importing is the only way to get a cad file to laser cut,so you are on the way,now it is trace,trace, trace.Optimize your tracing,knowing you only need formers,ribs,and cowlings...just print the rest,or it becomes a waste of time.However,since you were going to cut by hand,why bother with Cad?The file I sent you was full size,just print and cut up.
