I think I did, but my ASCII art isn't so good, so I'll to describe my
Represent the heating elements by drawing two resistors in series
stacked vertically on the paper, making a top, middle, and bottom node.
One leg of the AC goes to a diode "pointing to" the middle node. The
same leg also goes through another diode "pointing away from" the
The other of the AC leg gets directly connected to the top node. The
same leg also goes to a third diode "pointing away from" the bottom
I hope that's not too confusing.

Looks perfectly reasonable to me. Presumably if you have an even number
of sets, you can set the orientations so the total power consumption is
the same on both parts of the cycle.
