    "(and trivial) information"
    Mia culpa Captain RobπŸ˜”
    Just trying to give the forum a 'human face'😊.
    In future I'll try to reign in my humour and propensity for seeing 'connections' and finding background infoπŸ€”
    Yours contritely, (😜) FLEET

    Amen to that.
    Collectively we're a mine of useful (and trivial) information.......😁

    Nick, many thanks for this sharing...and measurement. I must admit I had taken previous consensus advice and now put a camber on my mid-deck. It worked out a bit more than your measurement off the kit piece.....my camber worked out as 4mm at mid chord.... see pic. But hey- whats 2 mm between friends - for a restoration I cant be too worried.

    Hopefully this closes out this query and forum thread - I cant believe there has been so much feedback !!

    Thanks everyone who has contributed. A build blog update following shortly as aft cockpit and deck hatches complete. πŸ˜€

    Hi Nick.
    It looks to be made from some formers with a thin ply skin, is that correct?

    Just checked an original part from the 34" Aerokits Crash Tender and the mid deck is slightly curved rising by just over 2mm from edge to centre and a slightly shallower curve than the roofs.

    Absolutely Mike, I just didn't pick 'em up on my first searchπŸ˜”
    Mia culpa πŸ€”
    Looking forward to the maiden reportπŸ‘
    By the way; the grease I use for my prop shafts is Teflon based.
    Has a wide temperature range, doesn't coagulate like molyb and lithium and Co, and is not so environmentally unfriendly as silicon and mineral based greases/oils apparently πŸ˜‰
    I tried various oils years ago, but it always seemed to 'run and hide' somewhereπŸ€”

    "also the part supplied in the VMW kit was a piece of flat ply anyway"
