My question is, who stable is the roof? It seems to me that it would wobble or sag if the slats were unbalanced.
Who stable? I don't know how to answer that
You are mostly correct on the construction - except it is pneumatic tubing rather than 'technic tubing' - I mention the difference because some tubing is quite stiff and pneumatic tubing is all bendy and flexible.
Stability isn't a problem. The roof stays in place when I'm displaying it and I can pick it up and move it around without expecting it to fall apart. There isn't any balance issue with the "slats" - they might wobble if the cart were shaken - but they won't come apart.
Don't get me wrong, it is a most excellent MOC, and I'll be pilfering ideas unmercifully from it. I was just curious.
It's ok. Often MOCs that look nice are horribly unstable. Most of my bots are like that - and there are some builders who's creations are even worse. I personally believe MOCs should strive to be both aesthetic and stable, but eh, sometimes you can't do both. But the cart is, in fact, very stable.
