Don, Thanks, I just got thru figuring a better way to glue these Shrouds up on the rigging tool. I don't know if that interests you or not. I also brightened my last picturesup, so I will run them .

             On the glueing, I have tried every kind of CA & only some works pretty well. I just thinned down my 560 white canopy glue & it seems to work best of all. You do have to let it dry over night,  tho it sets in a half hour or so & I put 2 thin coats on.  There are 60 glue spots on each side of each shroud. Thinned the 560 dries so you can't see it. 

         Here are the new pics.

    I said before that I made & installed these shrouds completely different than the plans call for , but it worked fine, real well. I still have to straighten some ratlines. There is no way I could have put on regular tied ratlines. The shrouds I can still do & these are done pretty much like them.
