MOBILE WING RACK #1

I never thought that this piece built with wood recycled from the kit's crate would turn out so useful. By lifting the outboard end of the wings for access, I easily match-sanded and installed the ailerons and rudders from a standing position, without ever removing the wings from it. Almost all work on the canard ends and tips was done with the canard on the rack. In addition, I move the whole assembly around in my garage without help, and very little effort, once the casters align with the direction I am pushing. When put away, the fuselage fits between the winglets and the work benches. The wings and the fuselage (without strakes) would occupy less than one car space in my garage allowing me to fit the kit and my two cars in the garage when not working. This lasted only until I started building the strakes, of course. Several pictures follow to show the details.
