Station 4/5 fitting

Finished the last rear vertical pieces at Station 11. I put a temporary brace where the tail skid assembly will mount (until I make it later).

Before moving forward, I need to make two Station 4 fittings. I have two original fittings with the project. Here is one of them. Notice it consists of 4 pieces brazed together.

I started making it tonight. The pieces on the left were water jet cut. I started making the front piece this evening. It is a piece of flat stock bent on three sides. Next blog I'll show more detail of that process.

Until then, enjoy!
