Tail Braces

The plans originally specified 1/8-inch threaded rods for the tail brace wires,
but a later revision said we can use streamlined aluminum tubing if we wanted.
I decided to use the exact same material as the jury struts.

I saw an interesting video on the web that demonstrated how much of an improvement streamlined tubing was over round rods, so it wasn't a difficult decision.

Total Time: 23.5 hrs.
