It's either my laptop or this new fangled forum software but it's still really pixelated. I'll just start measuring stuff and fill in anything I miss.

It's definitely not your camera, it's probably a forum user setting somewhere. But to make life easy send it to fwagoner at zianet dot com (P.S. spambots can read "at" and "dot", it's just force of habbit)

There was some discussion after the change about the high resolution pics slowing down the viewing for a lot of people using phones and slow internet. It was suggested that the software could be configured to automatically reduce the resolution to a more reasonable size for viewing.
Looks like that has happened? I have posted at least one gigabit sized photo since the swap.

I posted the test picture at 880 KB (not an unreasonable size) and the system reduced it to 60 KB. I think that's pushing the limit of useful graphics. ...but the work around was easy enough

I got a few measurements today but there's too much going on in the fuselage to piece meal the measurements. I'm going to have to take it down (it's up on a pile of stuff that makes it hard to get to) and draw up a set of fuselage plans.

Random pictures to illustrate the situation...
