Nice! The plane looks great! Is the rigging real? It almost looks computer generated.

The rigging is computer generated. :cry: Rushed to get it out and released I had little choice, :| However, now that that is done I am about to really do the rigging. :) Can't have it in my collection without rigging!!!! :mrgreen: I'll post a couple picture here when I'm done.

BTW. The fuselage was already done with real rigging when I posted. For that rigging I used Paint Brush Bristles!!!

A Quick tutorial on this rigging process. I really don't have the equipment or camera to do a much better presentation. However, I think you'll get the idea of how I do the rigging on a lot of my models.
Image
Usually I cut a small notch in the top and bottom of each wing strut before the assembly. So I am doing it a little differently because this one is already build. With a small pair of sissors I'm making a small snip in each strut.
Image
after determining a starting point, in this case I'm starting at the wing tip. I tie a knot in the end of the thread and a dab of glue to hold it in place. Then I begin running the thread through the cut notches and pulling it tight as I go from notch to notch.
Image
Once you get to the root of the wing you can bring the thread down to the bottom of the last strut and go back the other way to the tip of the wing creating the cross design.
Image
With a little practice, and carefully plannig your rigging sequence, you can actually rig the entire wing in one continuing run. By jumping from front to back and top to bottom.

This model is the large model and made with 110 card stock. The wing struts are suprisingly pretty stiff and I am having no problem rigging it in this manner. However, if you plan on building the smaller model and doing this rigging process using 67 card stock. I would suggest you print the wing struts on 110 stock, or at least doubling the strut thickness.

BTW After I complete one wing I go back and apply a small dab of glue to each notch to make sure the rigging stays in place.

How does this look??? The gray thread I use is really light so I tried setting it this way to get more light on the subject, so to speak. :) It really isn't that much harder doing it this way than doing it the way I use to by going through the wings with a needle.

Hee Hee, :lol: just looked a the picture a little closer and discovered I lost one of the paint brush bristles, rigging, off the front of the fuselage!!!!
