Default How do you hang your heavy warbird? Let's see some pics......

I have a dilemma.....
right now hanging from my joists in the basement are three warbirds all weighing between 25 and 30 lbs.
i have a simple rope with a saddle and some padding and hang the plane on some screws it the joist in the nose and tail.
the problem I have is that I always need someone to help me taking them down or hanging them up.
I am looking for an easier solution maybe with pulley and such that would allow me to lower and hoist the plane without any help.
If any of you out there have an easy way of doing it I would love to see it.
thanks for all your help.

I use the $10 bike lifts from harrbor fraight, I do them all by my self, I do have a fold out card table that I some times lower them down on to work on them and charger them then pull them back up.
