Hi tmp,

You mentioned warren truss construction....are you making a triangulated rectangular fuse structure with 4 "mini-bulkheads" at each station to complete the circular shape then sheeting it? I have been "think building" a Convair 340 for a while now and have sketched a stucture in TurboCAD using one of Laddie Mikulasko's & other's methods (copying one person is plagiarism, copying several is RESEARCH!) I am planning to use a rectangular basic fuse structure then gluing foam blocks on the outside between the mini-bulkheads at the various stations, then carving & sanding away anything that doesn't look like a round fuse with big fillets; then covering the thing with 2 overlapping layers of brown wrapping paper/thinned Titebond before priming & sanding.

I'd like to hear details of how your 130 structure goes together...pics perhaps?
