CG: I couldn't help but notice that you have no shortage of screwdriver's holding that motor glider together. hope you have a few AN bolt's laying around.
KR-2, Taylor Mono,
I used philips screwdrivers, so I wouldn't unnecessarily tear the threads up on the bolts or widen the holes. They hold it together good enough for a photo and to keep it looking like a plane, and not just a bunch of parts in the corner of a room. Lots of bolts are in, but not torqued, just there. I actually have safety wire running through many of the fuselage holes, to keep the wooden blocks inside from sliding out of line with the hole in the fuselage, as they are a bugger to get lined back up. So a bolt wouldn't go through anyway, with safety wire in the way... no problem for a smaller diameter non-threaded screwdriver though.
I'm not doing anything with it right now, it's just sitting there while I job search every day underneath it, which is very depressing. But I don't like having it apart in a pile of pieces; I'm afraid if I were to get killed in a motorcycle accident when fetching groceries, nobody would know the parts were anything more than random junk in a corner. At least this way my plane would have a fighting chance. How can you not "miss seeing and recognizing" a plane inside a house.

Harbor freight's finest screwdrivers? I knew they had to be good for something. Shouldn't damage any reasonably hard metal, like aluminium!
