The easiest way I can think of is to build a time machine, go back in time and stop yourself from crashing it. Anything else will be more effort, and very much less likely to work.

Not even even the power of duct tape can save that, and I doubt even JSR's godlike epoxy skills would resurrect it either.

You underestimate the power of the Duct Tape.

EDIT: RAG! This man must have a time machine! Look at the date on those photos man!

I'm a student engineer - I am fully aware of what you can do with duct tape.

If you can't build it with a set of mole grips, some duct & electrical tape, a few drops of epoxy, a few inches of bent piano wire, and two offcuts of pipe, you're clearly not JSR.

Wait, that went off track... and sounds like some Chuck Norris fact. Ooh, we can start a list of JSR facts!

Finally, that could read 4th of January. You are assuming the date is in the format MM/DD/YYYY, when it could be DD/MM/YYYY, which always makes more sense to me because it's in order of significance/length - shortest, middle, longest.

I'm from Oklahoma, I fully understand the power of duct tape as well. I also know that you can temporarily repair almost any engine problem with duct tape, bubble gum, paperclips, and pantyhose.

No problem with some fibreglass cloth and boat epoxy and a few dabs of superglue to temporarily hold it together as clamps. That is if you can at least locate most of the fragments.

You cannot fix that in any way that is reasonable or worth the effort.
As MaxuS said just try to salvage all the useful parts.

Sister balsa planks against the inside, reconnect all control linkages. Thats not a hard fix, it's more so the time it takes.
