Update 13

Good morning Trimotor fans. I hope you had a productive and restful weekend.

Last week, some amount of time was spent seeking the next biggest stumbling block to the timely completion of the project.

Whattayaknow, I found it:

That's right, the emergency hatch fits not-so-good.

It also has no attachment type fittings installed, nor any holes for, well, anything.

There is a box of fittings, links, handles, etc. that obviously goes with the hatch:

I couldn't help but laugh at the text on the box. Heh, did the writer intend to say that there is no way that these bits will function? Perhaps they meant that they didn't begin assembling the bits?
Time will tell.

It does have some rivets in a pattern similar to the fittings, and I'll use the "puzzle" method to get it together.

So far, the above bracketry is, unfortunately, the brightest aspect of this task.

the light coming through the cracks is the darkest aspect.
heh, poetic, eh?

Not to worry, as there is a plan. I'll be sure and keep this blog's readers updated as the plan is adapted.
