Building 1/4 Scale Low Skids for a Vario Jetranger.
Here are a few photos to show some of the steps I take in producing a 1/4 Scale Vario Jetranger Skid Set.

(I have moved away from Steel Couplings to fully welded joins with Scale trims.)

***Forming the 19mm x 3.5mm Aluminium tube for the Cross Tubes..

***Cutting the rebate on the tube ends for welding.

*** The welding jig.



***The assembled Skid set and a finished joint.




***Trim Pieces that will go on to tidy things up a bit..


*** Finished in Primer...
