Looks super Yes. Could you please tell me what did you use for rigging and how did you attached it? I would like to move on from stretched sprue and try something more advanced.

Many thanks

This is really cool. Really nicely done overall, and great to see something a little different from the usual roundup. 

Thanks Johnny.

Thank you castelnuovo.  I used EZ Line for the rigging.  It comes in different sizes and colors and is elastic.  I attach it using CA glue.  I cut a length that is slightly shorter than the span between the attachment points.  Glue one end first, then put some glue on the other end and stretch the line out to reach the other attachment.  Hold it in place while the glue sets up, then let go.  Below is a link to the product at Hobbyworld USA, but you can find it at lots of places.

Thank you Mr.Stacks. So you are not drilling any holes in the wings?

I'm sorry, I forgot that part.  Yes, I do drill small holes to receive the end of each line.  Smile

(Except I didn't drill any holes for the fine lines I used on the pontoons.  Since all the struts were small I didn't want to make them weaker by drilling into them, so I just stuck the line right to the seams where the parts came together.)

Cheers, Mark

Hey, thanks for showing the photo setup, Mark.

That's just what the Dr ordered for a nice, seamless white BG. Yes You're lucky to have some natural light coming in. Helps.

Nicest one I've ever seen. Your rigging is outstanding. Thanks for taking us along.
