I'm using the ~original tag right after the .jpg extension so the piccies will show. I'd have to go back and edit all of my posts and add the tag in fer my piccies to show up.

The only way that would work would be to:

Enter Edit post mode
Select all/Copy all text
Paste into word processor
Find/replace .jpg[/img] with .jpg~original[/img]
Confirm edits
Select all/copy
Re-enter Edit post mode
Select all/paste clipboard
Save post
Repeat fer the next multi piccie post

I usually just edit my posts one post at a time now.

That's an interesting fix, I hadn't seen it documented. I guess I can pull the image's URL from a quote... in the future. (Not, from a quote in the future. )

I wish I could sort the pictures in my albums or move all the trailers into the Trailers album.

Finally made a better mount fer the rear camera using the supplied tab ear mount. It's bolted in to the post instead of my previous ziptie method. I still have to make a shroud fer the camera and post. Now I have the ability to make super fine adjustments to align the camera view in all three axis.

Pleez use balsa wood formers and doped fabric, with a curved trailing edge, like a WWI-era airplane rudder.

Thanks fer the vote of confidence in going in that direction but I want to try my hand at small scale metal forming.

I will be removing the zipties and hot gluing the cable to the front edge of the support bar. I should be able to form some sheet metal over some cable to git my shape fer the support bar. It will be interesting to see how I will form the camera shroud...maybe a marble? The transitional cover from the hatch to the support bar will be just as fun.

Started working on a new support system fer the rear canopy using some leftover slotted angle. I'm going to add some EMT plastic pipe as support shims fer the locking pins. The canopy will no longer be attached to the end of the hatch but it will be secured to the end of the aero cap support rails. This will allow me to open the hatch without removing the rear canopy first.

I will eventually replace all the wood supports in the aero cap frame to slotted metal/angle since I'm pretty happy with the design of the current setup. I would like to try some aluminum box tubing fer weight savings but I will have to see what the differences in costs will be first. I just have to tweak the height of the front supports to drop them a little lower.
