Rather timely considering our conversation on Sunday, eh Don?

 I would think some light colored sharpie marker would keep you legal with little to no weight gain.

Yeah I know a sharpie but it is just silly.

But I did color them! Honest! It is BALSA colored ink!

There use to be a Chartpak marker that was "Blender", it was just thinner so you could blend colors. I can use that! :-)

Don, enjoyed a re-read of this thread.

Just realized the landing gear legs are independent "sticks"--what's your technique for getting them setup/aligned?  This is a great looking embryo!

Thanks! My technique was a little dab of superglue on the end of the gear leg and held it where it looked about right, then did the same on the other side. Once tacked into place put some Duco on to hold it permanently. It was all eyeball and "looks about right".

Well, you definitely have well-calibrated Mark I eyeballs!  I'm actually a bit disappointed it wasn't a complex and wonderful arrangement of machinist's blocks, triangles and spacers... Roll Eyes
