PZL-130 Orlik – CAD Import

I started by importing the 3-views into Alibre CAD, and drawing the flat views. After that, I began drawing the fuselage formers.

For some reason, all the formers were drawn to different scales. I am used to cleaning up minor discrepancies on the 3-views I use, but this is extreme.
