Crazy train ideas: cockpit cover frame from gallows

This is the sort of thing that comes to me when I’m half asleep on the train.


The idea is to extend the boom gallows so that they fold back over the cockpit to near the boom end, and support them with two more rails that otherwise fold down where the current safety wire is. That will form a four-sided pyramid supporting the boom, or fold lower to create a cockpit tent.
