Well if you're new, don't buy expensive foam like Depron. Buy sheets of DOW or pink panther. It's super cheap and it holds up well
The First Toss...
Hope for the best, but prepare the Worst.

Umm... Go to Grayson hobby and get the combo deal. It's really cheap and can get you on your feet

OK... that was a bit facetious...
You need a plan of what you want the plane to be able to do... then you design its shape... then you determine what structure is needed...
Or you buy a set of plans that tells you the shape and struture.To design your own requires a bit of experience (or a lot of copying of other plans, just altering shapes a little for appearance, maintaining basic areas and proportions).There are a LOT of calculations we could go into... But which ones you need to worry about depends on what you are doing.


Regards.
Andy.
