I got some brackets and was able to finish my tank cradle today.
First I drilled the L-brackets into position and glued the ply sheets to the timber with some liquid nails. I then screwed the brackets onto the sheets.
I then trimmed some spare rubber matting I had and clamped these into position to provide a soft surface for the skins to sit in the cradle.
A test fit using the leading edge skins looked great!
Next, I fired up the soldering iron so I could de-vinyl the leading edge skins. I only removed the vinyl strips on the outside surface and completely removed the vinyl on the inside.
I then put the right leading edge skin into the cradle and started fixing the nose ribs. The plans called advise starting to put the clecoes in from the front, top first, and working your way aft. Once the top side is clecoed on, then repeat for the bottom side. I managed to clecoe to top sides of all the nose ribs before I ran out of time.
Build time 2 hours.
