HEY - Watch it! I flew the Lockheed Connie models from the 749a, 1049g, to the 1649 back in a prior century - it was a nice flying banana.I built this bench originally to build RC aircraft on, because they require a dead flat surface on which to build, or else the aircraft you worked so hard on will have the shape and flight characteristics of a banana!
Yea, I'll have something there when I get the foam and Homasote in. For now it's only open when it has to be, otherwise it's closed.Perhaps I'm not seeing it, but you may/will want to provide for support of the swing-up on the hinged side, so it's not just hanging from the hinge straps.
Well, yeah, that makes sense.... however, it's when it closed that I am concerned about the weight of the structure hanging from only the hinge-straps. Something (a ledge) at the bottom of the structure to sit upon, relieving the shear force on the hinge.For now it's only open when it has to be, otherwise it's closed.
