Thank you, Don! It's a really nice kit and I can't wait to get it all done and rigged. It'll look super cool.

Another simple jig was in order to start the trapeze. It was exciting and it's still a little delicate, but with careful soldering and should be good! I got the main supports located correctly by cutting and putting a piece of paper over the mount area, poked the holes in-line with the the fuselage decking holes located in the kit and you end up with a near perfect line-up. The forward and aft "A-frame" is also dead vertical so it's at right angles to the top of the fuselage deck so that geometry is easy.

Anyway...the state of things. I hope to strengthen it tomorrow and start the engine soon!

Stay tuned...Dan
