The complexity of designing ekranoplans is that they go beyond the competence of both aircraft designers and shipbuilders. The Ekranoplan is not an airplane. To the ekranoplan, huge demands are placed on strength and stability. In this case, the ekranoplan should be much easier than any ship or boat. The requirements are not very compatible, and therefore there are many planes, and there are very few ekranoplans.
The era of screen design was discovered by the brilliant designers Alekseev and Lippish in the 1950s. And ended with their closest disciples. We can assume that the technology is lost, as it often happened with many technologies in the history of mankind. Accordingly, the proposed Guide can be attributed to the category of priceless artifacts.
Perhaps you are a genius. In that case, you can try to assemble the ekranoplan from a clean slate, based on your ideas. But this will take you many years, and not the fact that you really will prove to be a genius of Alexeyev's level. Rather, on the contrary. Confirmed by the experience of the vast majority of self-builders. Ekranoplan, unlike an aircraft, can not be calculated, there are no such methods. At a minimum, many improvements are required. This will take a lot of money. Your hobby will ruin you.
The manual for self-assembling the WIG-craft ORCA-1 will make your plans real, and the costs are minimal. You can build an ekranoplan that will fly well and not kill its passengers. Also, the manual includes a test production manual. This practical experience was received at a high price, and will allow you not to drown and not to break down the apparatus on the first approach.
