Fabricating Engine mount to landing gear truss x members

Today I was determined to finish the cross members from the engine mount to the landing gear truss. I was really frustrated yesterday trying to get the correct length and angles for each cross member. So today I went to Lowes to buy 3/4″ wooden dowel for mock ups. This worked pretty good however was still a little painful. Anyway I was able to get all 4 cross members done and now the whole thing has to come apart to get sand blasted and put back together for welding on Sunday. BTW the tape is just to hold the cross members in place. Tomorrow I will get some magnets to keep everything neater for welding.

Time spent today 2.5 hours. Total time spent on the mod 39.5 hours
