    I see the D VII! I have one of those on my bench too! It's my first paper model. Wingtips were a bit tough. Mine is almost the same stage as yours. I have the fuselage together and the lower wing on. Don't have the tail section on just yet.

    I'd take a picture of my bench but I just use the dining room table! I'd like to see more of your DVII though.

    Rickstef wanted to see The Fat White Cat when it was finished.Struts are still not right and I had to fake the tail skid, it's a birthday present for my stepbrother-in-law. He ask for a Spad 13, when I showed him the
    dell collection he said"I want a plastic model":TS.

    Err. I have an embarrasment of wealth--four work-stations.

    Here they are. I seem to be the only one so far using a drafting table. I think I'm ahead on pliers.

    Notie the cat in the sewing set-up. This is an important piece of equipment.

    Dave, I notice that you don't have anything on your walls. I think you should buy a flightmap and put it up. It will go along with the aircraft theme.

    My computer and printer area suffers from blank-wall as well. I'm going paint it, torromow. Or maybe the next day.

    Thanks ringmaster. I'm getting ready for those now. What do you use for the center fuselage struts? I was going to use a toothpick or something similar.

    Round tooth picks wrapped in green 20# paper. I got the righ color from my sears bill. Next time I may use white. The cutting diagram for all the struts is wrong, about 20% too short. Eyeball it and use draftsmans deviders to get the dementions. The interplaine struts are too short too.No real problem sence you are fabricting everything anyway. there is a plan on FG; lick D VII and more information. I'm going to use more research and more jigs next time. My first biplane, at least no rigging. Makes a pritty ship. I used bamboo scures for LG legs, a little too thick, but looked OK. I made my first interwing struts out of wrapped tooth pick, worked great, didn't have enouh bond paper for another set, found some 68# art paper the right color, but not asgood. Oh well, the birthday boy loved it anyway.
