Hi Danny and all, this is the end of the D.Bryant Bulldog strut, the tag is much longer than the Fury. I never had problems with the struts popping out on the Bulldog. The wires did need tensioning now and again. That's why I made the Fury ones adjustable without disconnecting them.

I should stop looking at the Bulldog plan as I get a terrific urge to build another and there are no laser cut parts for it.indecisiondsc_0619[791].jpg

Well don't look at me, takes weeks to trace a plan for cutting and i am not keen to repeat that exercise!

I know it wont be very scale, but can you rig some wires to run alongside the struts, from upper to lower wing anchors?

Hi Danny, if we have a long bad winter I would do it the way I done the first one only now I could print the formers and ribs off the plan. I don't think even the Sinclair Spectrum. was about when I made the first one. The engine was the most difficult part.

I think the extra may do the job on the struts along with careful tensioning and no nose over landings.

Cheers Eric.

After tensioning the rigging I had to file some more off the tag as I was unhappy with the way they sat on the wing. the amount extra left on the tag seemed insignificant so I tried this on the small tags, it fits in the slot and goes down the side of the main spar. Unless it snaps off it has to come a long way out. Fingers crossed.dsc_0617[795].jpg
