Wow.   The detail going into this one is simply amazing to witness Rick.  Awesome work here.  

The LEGO rotor setting apparatus is also funny to see in action.   





Thanks Troy.  My son is happy to see his LEGO helping me with my bench work.

Long story short.  I lost the WIP images only because of impatience with my Photo Bucket account issues and PhotoShop.   I'd always preach to my kids: "Never enough time to do it right.  Plenty of time to do it over."  This time its a lesson on me.


These images will hopefully cover enough for the parachute pack, belts and foot pedals.



Shock cord on the tweezers is .4mm braided thread I secured at a garment store with xs Ultra Wire fed through to allow bending.  Seat belts and foot pedals in place.  Parachute pack with straps and shock cord release.



One of my reference images shows the parachute pack as a "treated canvas" pack with lots of straps.  So I got a creative.







Flat lead wire straps adjusted to final position and secured with CA.  Epoxy applied to parachute pack mount area and shock cord glued to mast then set aside to cure.
