    Default WTB Wing Rotator

    A couple HF engine stands with a piece of box tube extension. Make one set of attachments for the fuselage, and another for the wings. Attach root and tip on the wing.

    Do you recall what the diameter of the ring is, and is it made of round or square section? It looks to be about a 1" section.

    I've got to cover a WW1 Albatros wing for our son. It is 30' long and fairly 'floppy'. When the fabric goes on, there's not many places to get a hand hold, so it's going to be a pain to handle if it's not in a rotatable frame.
