Bracing back half of fuselage

In the last 3 days worked a bit on the bracing of the back half of the fuselage. Robert supplies 1/8″ steel wire for the bracing (#8 fence wire), but I decided to used steel cable, the same as used for bracing lots of other “things” in the plane. It’s a bit more expensive but a lot easier I think.

I made 20 brackets shown above. They are mounted in the “corners” of all the “boxes” that will be braced. Also worked on the frame that holds the tail skid. Will show that tomorrow ! 🙂
