Deployment truss

The deployment truss crossmember was built out of styrene tubes with a metal rod in its core. I then added conical ends out of paper.

The bridge in the middle Is made of a larger diameter tube and detailed with 0,5*0,5 mm styrene strips.

Next i built the deployment struts with their interesting forklike ends out of styrene rods that I carved and sanded and small pieces cut out of styrene sheets. details out of 0,5*0,5 mm styrene strips.

The uplock struts where made in a similar fashion.
