    Like the Cardens, each joint of the 3/8 balsa sticks gets reinforced with a Durant Direct Drive gusset. The 90deg brace in the gusset adds incredible stength to the fuse - keeps it square!!

    Been saving these gussets for a while. DDD is out of business now but would be easy to get more laser cut somewhere.

    Ya! If you get a chance order some Aerobond from Vogelsang Aeroscale. It’s a bit thicker than Lepage’s so really stays in place.

    Love how both of these dry clear also!!!

    Re: Giant Stearman / Moki250 Build

    Will do that , cheers .. Had a hold up today , the brackets for the wing center section were wrong , after a bit of head scratching I realized they were packaged wrong and were in with the fuse hardware .. Really don't like the fact that there is no access to the hardware once it's built . Think I will solder the nuts to the brackets so I can tighten them if needed down the road .

    Former F2 - F14 installed on the bottom and sides of the fuse.

    Instructions highlight not gluing on F3, F10, F16 until later - a few steps in between that need to be done.
