Iíve been busy with cad and finally have some templates for the servo mounts. Usually I would just laser cut these but for a small batch, a scroll saw is quite accurate if you donít have too many parts to cut. Templates printed on card stock and covered with packing tape both sides. Cut out with kitchen scissors.

So all the servo mounts for #589 got a coat of thinned epoxy prior to assembly and installation. The winch runs a continuous loop on an arrow shaft to which the sheets will attach. I also built up the main hatch using the milled frame provided by Hans. I replaced the provided birch ply top with a peace of 1 /16 polycarbonate. I added the Welsh dragon graphic from the backside. Once I am satisfied I can work on all the running gear through hatch openings alone. I will set down the deck.
