Today I glued the angle blocks to the long girders. After that I glued the ends to both girders. I do have the wrong push pins so I ordered a bunch of socalled T-pins. You can order them at a....... knitting store! Never imagined I would place a order in such a store :) These pins are also used by the real RC airplane builders who do build the classic way with balsa:

Yesterday I glued the main girders together. They are made out of 3 pieces. The top girders are 1-piece ones:
This morning I started with measuring the position of where the angle blocks have to be glued. I put them next to each other so that they are identicall when putting the sides of the bridge together. I mark them so that they are all four pointing the same way:

Kit parts are ready, now the base for building. On a piece of plywood I taped a copy of the plans provided by Campbell. Copy because I want to save the original drawing.
The kit is ready now, all wood is stained. I made a mix of 50% darkgrey, 25% lightgrey and 6% mahonie. The latter is the strong colour, after drying it is still a little reddish.
The test; right darkgrey, left my mix:
Stay tuned for the build coming weekand have a good sunday!
