In Response To: Strip: Thigh braces? ()

: I am about to start building the cockpit of my Redfish King and
: would like to add thigh braces. Does anyone have a good pattern
: for where they should go, how long and wide they should be etc.?

: Thanks!

hi,

one thing to remember is that kneecaps are fragile, so any brace/hook should engage well above the knee, on the fleshy parts of the leg. and the knee cap should touch nothing at all, imho.

greetings,
