Varnished gear struts

All the landing gear wooden parts got sanded and given a final varnish coat today. I was pleased with the results. The dozen wooden pieces next to the varnish jar are the slats for the fuel tank cradle. Since I was varnishing anyway, I decided to give them their first coat.

A closer look at a front strut.

While that was drying, I drilled the fuel tank cradle straps.

Here's my pile of "parts to be painted". This should be Thursday's project.
