Default Cargo plane - Twin engine project

This winter is creating a build frenzy ....

I've built the Mosquito ... then the Vulcan ...and now I want a cargo twin to do candy / poppy drops. A C130 / A400 style would be fine - but they are 4 engine jobs ... I have a couple of small 930kv motors that I reckon a 1m span Hercules style could do.

Sketch out plans :

Cut the parts

Lite Ply source for strengthening formers

Sides and formers ready

Gluing up

3D print some motor cowls

fuselage continues

Basic wing cut and checked ... will be flat bottom wing with curved top sheet added

Testng ideas for wing spars ..

She will have servo operated cargo door at rear .... flaps ... and the usual 4 other ch's ...and I will add a Stabiliser Gyro to give me slow capability for the 'show drops' its intended for.
U/C will be like the C130 ... twin outer wheels on fuselage and a front steerable. All fixed ...

Initially it was just an idea ... but once I started - the bug has bit deep !
