The Keel screwed to a flat board covered in clingfilm so I can remove it later (I hope!)

Solution? I cut through the side piece joining the frames together, pulled the frames upright and glued some scrap wood across the cut, :)

Happens to the best of us. I had to pull a frame off and re-glue it as it went a bit wonky ! (Don't tell anybody though ;) )

As i want to R/C my Hood and hope to have all 4 props working I've taken a chance and drilled the 2 holes in frame 37 where I think the inner props will need to pass through, if Im wrong then nothings lost and I can simply glue scrap wood over the holes if needed

cheers Les
