Vic, Scott, All,

Thank you for your kind words. I am going to use USA archbars, prototypical and cheap. Vic, the roof done on my ancient table top belt sander. It took me about 20min to get it down to the right profile. Gluing up the 4 pieces of balsa to make the size block was not much fun. It took almost an hour to get the weighting right to get an even about of pressure to hold it while the glue set up. Truss rods, air brakes, and bolsters and it will be ready for paint and detailing. Hopefully this week it will be done, but my son has 3 nights of Tiny Mite football this week.....

Ted.
