Since several people have made comments about it on other forums here is a note about the red and black for the thruster quads. 1 - I like the look of it, just to be different. 2 - it is sort of an homage to the first MPC Eagle models I built in the 1970's, those came with red and black checkerboard decals to go on the thruster quads.
There is a pin that goes through the strut inside the pod. The pin is also fitted into a slot to keep the strut from twisting. To hold the footpad on the strut I used the same technique, a pin holds it in place.
