OK... I pretty much have all my tubing measured out.

Since the R dwgs are a supplement... you need the S drawings to build.
One buring question I have. Do I need to add any of the tubing shown on the Standard fuselage's bottom truss view into the R fuselage ?

They aren't even close to looking the same.

Top dwg is the R and the bottom is kinda like the S. Not an exact drawing for the S. I just wanted to show a quick comparison to the front portion on both of them.
