Anyway, it's been a fun (mostly, I still have nightmares about the power pole) build.  Thanks for following.  Time to clean up the mess that is my workspace.  I must say that my new modules helped me not lose any parts, and keep tools and stuff where I could find them, or this would have taken even longer.

A masterpiece, Jeff. Thanks for sharing. I hope to be building that kit sometime this year as well. It will be nice to have your thread as a reference.
