    A voice from the past! Glad you found time to play with this again. Yeah, Fults is the way to go on the nose gear. Moving it forward would reduce the stress on it, I suppose, but I do like that...

    Hmm, looks like you made a mistake. The grooves in the balsa sides should have been on the exterior, not facing the doubler. What you ended up with looks good, but is not as strong as it could have...
