MK II Mast
Worked on the diagonal braces for the center of the mast. These braces have a double taper and cutouts. I guess the cutouts were to save weight top side.

A jewelers saw and a fine blade made quick work of the cutouts.
Test fit just to see how it was going to go.
I made wooden templates for the styrene strips.
Here you can see the taper in the top piece.
Fitting 2 bottom braces.
Going to take a little sanding and filling but I am glad it is done and that I made the changes.
