Black ABS, lower (ventral) mount fastened to inner hull, top half (Dorsal) pinned in place with two 3/23 "L" shapedbrass "Jesus" pins.

Two down, two to go.

Next step is drill for, and install brass inserts. One of the two dorsal sections receives a brass 6-32 insert for which the bottom of the Attack Scope threadsinto, holding the upper hull on.

After that step comes the acetone bath, then lining the MSD surface w/compressiblefoam rubber.

Then mount to the hull.

Done.

Rudder stock repaired. Functions better than ever. The wheel collars are drilled 3/32 to accept the brass jumper and control horn. Solid as a rock, Terminator T-100 grade survivability.
