Alex and Bruce know what it takes to turn a pile of material like this into the Roof Trusses and Lateral Braces for a bridge. Better yet, they can do it! Later I will be having the guys do some reverse engineering when they make a 3/8 scale model of one of these roof rafters using the framing square.
Alex also took a turn at rigging the second Lifting Yoke and Ginpole on the 3/8 scale model. Tricky business, but now he understands more about the thinking that goes into a major project like this.
