Default RE: Building the Mick Reeves Hawker Hunter

The kit includes a handy stand that is used not just for field support when the model is finished, but also for aiding construction.

The plans call for the end pieces to be hinged, with wire braces to support the ends when the stand is erected. I chose to do things a little differently, using 1" x 1/2" hardwood strips to create a "slot" for the ends to fit into. The base of the stand is subdivided for holding tools etc, as well as for holding the ends just now.
