Hi!
I haven't got a a complete airplane in fiberglass..... but I have made the engine nacelles (front and rear) and the oil-cooler made in epoxy/glass for my Marutaka DC-3 (powered with two OS FS .26 fourstrokes) Weight around 3kg (5-6 pounds).
I have also made my own carbon-fiber 3-bladed props (as exact to scale as possible) in 10x5"size. wing is covered in chrome coloured Oracover "dulled" down on a piece of glass window, before covered in panels. Engine cowls are covered in aluminium tape dulled down with 1200 wet paper and soft steel woll.

Regards!

Hi!
Remember the article! It was published in Model Airplane News (still have the mag somewhere).
If you have the plans ...what is the problem? -All information is on there!

I bought one of these from Quality Fiberglass. It has a 95" wingspan. The guy that built the fiberglass parts, sheeted the wings for me. I cannot figure out how to build it. The wings have a built in slot for a spar, but the middle section of the wing does not. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

I wonder how I could cut the slot out for the center section? Would I have to take the sheeting off on side to do?

if there's a root cap on the center section. chances are the builder just caped over the slot. just transfer the slot from the wing panel to the center section

I was wrong the center section has the slot. The wings do not have a slot in them. Will this be difficult to add. There was no plug on either wing end.
