Ahhh that's where the hangup was, I did not know to use the external sketch tool when also using the shapebinder. Now I know that. Will try again.

Here's how the model I made using just the external sketch tool looks in dependency graph

Ahh, Link stage 3 I hadn't noticed, different rules apply.

I don't use that branch, so I'm unable to help further. Sorry.

When you have problems with the realthunder version, you should ask in the Assembly forum.

OK I did not know that, but in the end I believe my issues where so basic and of a general nature that we got to the right place in the end.

I've the feeling that the TO should have a look at Topological_naming_problem and Feature_editing#Advice_for_creating_stable_models

You are right - in principle, ut as soon as things don't work as the helpers describe, we don't know whether it's the version or something else.
