Here is what I ended up doing: http://karrelsj.blogspot.com/2017/02...age-stand.html
You cannot see it, but I built a cross bar in the back once I got the fuselage onto the stand.
That was sufficient to mate the tail, install the cabin top, and do everything that I wanted prior to putting it onto its gear and hanging the engine. It was nice having it on wheels, so I would recommend that. Also, that height ended up being just right to give me access to get underneath it for the antenna doublers, and tail mating, but made it not too high for climbing in and out when mounting the cabin top, doors, interior.
