I have to agree! You get this thing ironed out to your satisfaction, and I may just have to have one. Nice looking airplane. Smiley

Tacked it together for the obligatory "bones shots".  Now the name should make sense.

Bob,

I was trying to develop a system in which laser cutting could help make a straighter box fuselage.  I drew all sorts of tooling, that would be included in the parts sheets, to help align the fuselage when I realized that most of the tooling could be included as part of the structure.  The structural system that I used in the Bostillation prototype is simple and went together very smoothly. 

There are a few detail improvements to make but it essentially "flew right off the board".  I am now redrawing the Irish Jumping Bean (To use this type of structure, aerodynamically I have it where I want it.), the Beanburg D1, and the Wright Amount of Wrong to use this structural system.

KF, the self-jigging box fuselage sounds really interesting. Tell me more.

Here is a pic of the Bostillation prototype on the board.  Uses the self-jigging box fuselage method that I have been working on.  I'll be using it in all my Bostonian and Embryo models.
