Thanks for your kind words Les

I,ll put pen to paper & come up with various "packs", mitre cuts, RS parts, etc etc.
It might give another option to new builders that may worry about certain parts of the chassis prior to starting their build

cheers

When I did the compound mitre on the end of FF2 I noticed if I worked backwards on FF3 that I already had my mitre cut! Simples

I always look at the task .... Stand there & scratch my head n nuts for 10 -20 mins.

Once I have things right in my head, promptly go and cock it up anyway

Nice to know I am not the only one

If memory serves me right, the compound mitre pack that Armoto sold, was quite popular
