great trip, Brian. This is with grand kid # 11 down by Calvert Cliffs. It was HOT when we were there.

kayak season has slowed down, mainly do the cold weather. maybe if it gets warm again, we'll go out for the last time. there suppose to stock some trout for the fall season so I might do that. how was your trip to the east?

Thanks, Ray. Like I said, passable, not perfect. Not sure they would have passed muster for the Loening.

I don't see a thing wrong with those stacks. "Stick-to-itness" pays off.

Tried Aluminum, then brass again, and went back to styrene. Passible I guess.

Oops, didn't see the previous postings. Sorry. They look great..... (ahem).

Huey's ideas sound good to me. Huey, do you have a link or address to LHS? I hope to build the F4B biplane and I'm sure I could use some aluminum tubing that are airfoil shaped for struts. Don, your model is turning out really nice. Glad to see it as anything but a "D" version. You doing detail it inside and out?
Don C, Comment for image # 3950614 Oct 17 11:29
Thanks, Huey. I'll give that a try. Tried brass first, but that didn't go right either. Maybe if I bend a hundred or so I'll be able to find 12 that work.

Don, how about aluminum tubing? I get it from my LHS in many sizes. Cut a length longer that you need. Insert a piece of wire, the kind used in electronics, to keep the tube from collapsing. Then squeeze the tube, bench vice or Chanel locks, to creat a novel shape. Then bend it over something to make the radius you need.

Exhaust is causing problems. These are styrene tubes. Not right. I'm open to ideas. Actually I need ideas.

Slow progress, too much summer stuff to do. Seat is ready
