    Thanks to a new social media friend named Sean, who kindly provided a long off-cut of rubber mat to simulate the texture of the technical drawings. Preliminary fit shows it is easy to cut and trim using a knife, but will need some contact adhesive to lock it down flat.

    After contact adhesive. Lovely and flat.

    Adding hydraulic lines using plastic coat-hangers. (Still gotta glue down the rubber mat.)

    Replacing the catapult linkage. I’ve kicked and broken the plywood/plastic one twice now, so it’s time to replace it with 10mm plate steel and steel tube. Strong enough to sling-shot a Viper out of a launch tube!
