    If elmshoot's around and has a question ready, I'll gladly yield the floor to him (he missed a chance last week I think). If he doesn't reply by tomorrow afternoon (EDT), I'll come up with something.

    That last clue makes it easy, but I'm going to pass because I'm in a building frenzy at the moment. On that particular mission, though, I think they had a crew of two. No need for the third, who...

    It will be easier if you use two pieces of Monokote: one for the part from the short brace back and another for the front. I usually replace these with a carved and hollowed-out balsa block.
