I was finally able to make more progress on the 109. I made the modifications outlined by D-Rock and BIW, and think they will work out great. Since the job of fabricating pieces and mounting on the T-Braces is finished, I should make quicker progress with the stringers. I really worked hard to make the fuse laser straight on the center thrust line, and pinned the mess out of the thing. At this point I think it is ready to take on a hurricane, no pun intended...... well, maybe a little intended!
