Station 1/2 lower fitting & wires
First, two fittings had to be made to accept the shackles. I cut these out of .125 stock. Easy fitting to make. You can also see where the lower part of the spider plate has been cut. The spider plate was built for an OX-5 radiator, which is flat along the bottom. Since the Hisso radiator is curved (for more cooling area), the bottom part had to be cut off and a rounded section put in its place. I got good news today - the lower section is finished at the water jet cutter. Once the fuselage is out of the jig, I'll line up the radiator and weld on the new section.
OK - back to the fitting - here's a detail shot showing how it all goes together. Don't worry, the bolts are temporary and all the fittings will be finish painted later.
As it stands today. Four more wires to go!
