Best-
Thanks! I think the two uprights braced together does simplify and strengthen the structure. This dip is actually no lower than the top of the main frame so I think we're good for the hangar bay. (knock on wood) My new concern is that the pylons may be too close to the top edge, if not wrapping onto the top of the secondary hull. I won't know until the frame gets inside a cast hull.

No, sorry. No astronauts today. The visual joke only goes so far…
