I worked on the rotor head next.
I drilled a .020 hole in each blade attachment area, then a hole in each blade. I felt by adding a piece of .020 wire, they would hold the blades in place better and stronger.



The blades are not glued in. you can see the slight curve in the picture.

After having a hard time keeping the cockpit in place, I decided that a floor and ceiling were needed.



You can see were the brass scratched the floor.
That then led to the reworking of the brass rotor support.

Thank you all.
I have glued the halves together.
I should be able to get some bench time this next week.
I will post more pictures at that time.
