Hard to believe that someone would actually go up in one of those "Kite's" .

Nice job on the rigging ! ( that would have driven me nut's.)

The cockpit look's good too.

She's a pretty little plane, keep her away from the cat's ..... ( they like rigging too ...)

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Excellent work!

You must have the patience of Job and the perseverence of Sisyphus to have done your rigging.

Actually the rigging was not that bad. I was afraid I would not be able to finish the rigging before started the build but once I started doing it it turned out not as bad as I first thought. Now I'm kind of link doing it :) and can't wait to start my next ww1 bi-plane.
