Part #14873 - SD7/9 End Ladder Set $4.25

While the following photos show a pre-production set of our SD24 ladders being test assembled, the SD7/9 ladders are basically the same, just more ladders in the kit. And the size is a little different as well. The SD7/9 fret contains four sets of ladder sides and an assembly fixture to hold the ladder while being assembled, as seen in the photo above. The mounting tabs (feet) on the ends of the ladders are bent 90 degrees and then the ladder sides slide up, into the slots on the fixture. This will hold the ladder square during assembly. The kit includes .010" phosphorus bronze wire to use as ladder rungs. There is also be a half etch guild on the fixture to aid in cutting the rungs to length. The idea is for the fixture to hold the sides in place, the rungs slide into the holes in the sides and then solder or glue the whole assembly together. Once that is done, the assembled ladder slides out of the fixture and is ready to add to your model. Drill template holes in the fixture plate will aid in getting the ladders added easily. The kit also includes plastic NBWs for holding the ladders in place.
