all the sudden it was on the floor! tail, wings everything just --kaput! So now I have the lower wings on and have to figure out strut rework as all pins snapped off (of course) leaving me eight different possible combinations for strut placement (at least first strut) . Note to self---Next time mark struts in case of epic fail such as this. Calm, breathe...drink heavily. Ahh. I will continue the madness after watching Happy Feet 2 with my soon to be bride Svetlana and then start again fresh tonight. We get hitched next weekend by the way!
First biplane....thousands of lessons learned so I guess it is a success so far -lol!
