    Thought I would share some photos of my new rotisserie I am making. I still need to make the attach brackets, but the hard work is mostly done.

      these are mine. the crank& wheels from grainger& an elec motor chain is sustitutable. large,thick wall telescoping  tubing fo r posts Crank mount 6x2 angle welded together for frame. Drilled 1x1 pinned to end of rotating tubes bolt to fit airframe or wing using "room door hinges as flex connections( sometimes welding brackets that are then centered to parts with 3/8ths bolts drilled into wingtips serve as mounts. fabric is glued over holes & paint hides smallpuncture "wounds". 5/8bolts extend thru 2" spaced hols to adjust height of telescoped tubes. band saw, miller tig & lathe, 2 day project. I try to have engine mount with a centered angle bolted through Mt holes attached to crank end & centered angle on verticle fin hinge at same centerline as engine mount  to follower end. clamp the two lower frames together with steel angle  or 2x4 for alinement . Rolls right into paint booth.
