      Why, for God's sake, wait for me?! Assemble one for yourself. Surely there is enough information spread out all over this forum to guide you in the endeavor!

      Get to it!; chop-chop!; get a move on!; Arriba, Arriba!; Mush!; double-time!; Throttle to re-heat!; All Ahead Mother-****er!

      If you wait for OTHERS ...

      ... YOU will never get anything done!

            That indexing pins and flange along the longitudinal cut is a great idea that can be used on the X-craft. Click image for larger version

              That flange along the longitudinal/ equatorial cut reminds me of this type of watertight compartment. Click image for larger version

                  Too good to pass up, just ordered one. Might fit a 2" with plenty of annular space.
