    Trying to frame the entire cabin assembly all at once looked like a pain so soldered the 3 areas I had so far.

    A little more progress. Fitting up the cabin area with temporary wooden dowels.

    Cabin area steel tubing framing complete. Chose to anchor rear pillars in Hysol vs trying to solder so close to wood. I buried the ribbed nails deep in the lower frame in Hysol then filled the steel pillars with Hysol.

    And with the wood taken away. Big step completed today, it feels good. I did steel throughout the engine, landing gear and wing area instead of wood dowels vs the original just had steel in only2 areas.
