Sean, another image editing program is Irfanview https://www.irfanview.com/ good for cropping screen shots etc.

Is this fly before the other ones still on the building board ;)

Frank Skilbeck, you know me, can't tolerate the thought of an empty building board! Started the main box spars for the AV48 in the clubroom this evening!

Fin and rudder traced and added to the General Arrangement drawing, on which the scale is now full size.

All of the component parts are now traced and scaled up to full size. I'll copy them and scale them to my required model size, probably around 4 metres, and then start thinking about the construction.
I'm really impressed with this software, highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experiment with CAD.
