Since he lives so far from USA, and shipping large objects can be expensive,
Bill has wisely decided to skip the F/G hull shell, and to start building his Coot

the same way he has built boats in the past, upside-down. Notice how Bill has

assembled the wing trusses first, and then, with the attachment straps in place,

he's using the wings as jigs for assuring that the main 96 & 127 frames are in

the precise place and angle needed for hands-off flight a few years from now.
