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.

I bought one of those at an IPMS show last year for $5.  What did you use for the rigging?  How did you do it?  I need instruction before attacking this little gem.

Look at cnq's post just above yours.

Here's one method of using EZLine:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xzFBkGTu7k

EZLine will deform if CA glue touches it which doesn't matter much if you simply want to cement/glue the end of the line. However, you must be careful not to get CA glue on any other part the thread.

The times I've used EZLine I simply stuck the ends of the line into holes I'd drilled in the wings. Use a tiny dab on a very small implement (like the end of a toothpick) to secure one end of the line. Then cut the line a little shorter than the length needed to reach the second hole and, with tweezers or a scissor clamp (hemostat) hold the other end into the other hole and put a dab of CA on it. Probably in 15 or 20 seconds you can take away the hemostat and let the line come back to a gentle stretch.

Hope this helps.

Mike
