A lot of us on here, or at least myself, is new to all of this... reading construction drawings, welding, etc.

The photos that are uploaded to the User Galleries are priceless.

I'm constructing a mock-up of the fuselage to figure the lengths of tubing for the R version. Had some head scratching as to whether I was reading the plans correctly. Got online and opened up a few of the galleries that had shots of the standard fuselage and it answered all my questions.

Which reminds me. If anyone has posted a "process" on a thread... might be, actually it'd be a good idea to post that process in "your" User Gallery.

Thanks to all that have posted photos. My hat is off to ya'll. Edited by: Jerry
