    I would like to hear your input on the concept? Would people be interested in watching it? Do you have any other ideas for the direction of a show?

    I look forward to the feedback,

    A question for all the builders out there.

    I want to start building Tsunami's longerons, but I can't find the material stocked anywhere. I am looking for 7075 T6 ANGLE 3"x3"x3/16 and they have to be a minimum of 10' long. Does anyone know where to find it? Or do I have to special order the material?

    I called a neighbor of mine who used to work at Boeing in Seattle. He said the supplier below would likely have that.

    Is that what the longerons were made of? Not extrusions like in the Mustang?

    I'm not familiar with the mustangs material, but yeah it's 7075 angle.

    Thanks Box A35,

    I actually tried calling Castle Metals this morning, their parent company. However they have not got back to me, so I left Transtar a message as well. Hopefully they can find it.

    I took a few pictures of the longerons today and wanted to see what you guys think.

    The original longerons consist of two 7075 angle 3x1 1/2x 3/16 riveted together by a 3x3/16 plate. If I was to replace the original with an extruded channel (same dimensions)...would they have a similar strength?
