Reply: Foam source and type?
I used the fanfold pink Foamular extruded polystyrene foam. The Home Depot lists it as 1/4" thick, but it is closer to 3/16" thick. Either way, it really doesn't matter much. Just make the parts fit and you are good to go.

Alternate sources are: Lowe's BlueCor foam, Dollar Tree Foam Board (paper on or off, your choice), a product called Depron, or Elmer's Display Board. Elmer's is more brittle with the paper removed, but you can buy a box of it online in sizes up to 4' x 8'.

Don't be tempted to skimp on the 1/64" plywood. The strength it brings is needed to resist hard landings.

Foam source and type?
I'm interested in building this plane - but curious what your source for the foam is? Looks like Home Depot carries a 1/4 rigid foam. Would this work? Are there other sources?

My version of the Dutch
A "fineer of balsa" seems to make sense if it means a sheet of balsa. Triplex make sense as plywood.
In the list of materials "planktes fineer of balsa voor vleugelribben entippen" translates in Google as " planking veneer or balsa for wing ribs". I will use "3mm sheet balsa for ribs and tips."
Draad translates as wire or thread, but makes sense if you think of direction of grain in the wood.

I just hope that the cabin and the tail fin are supposed to be covered with tissue! Maybe the whole fuselage is to be covered.

I may just make this glider as the whole design is so different from what we usually see.
