Default Re: X-15A-2 WIP....Yeah I know...

Time to install the lines---the "pre-drilled holes" on the sponsons were totally wrong. The lines all run parallel and the holes are evenly spaced fore and aft. Not even close.

Soooo....after I filled the holes, I taped the sponson in place, then I took a length of piano wire and dipped it in black paint (like a fountain pen), slid the wire carefully through the wire stand-offs until the piano just touched the sponson. It gave me 5 perfect little black dots and I knew where to re-drill.

It's RARE that I'm ever that inventive.....
