Once again another great looking model. Rigging on this is superb. Is it difficult to do?

Riggin this model is no difficult at all!It requires just a litlle patience.I use a little drop of cyanoacrilate at each step and let it dry before advancing to the next. One useful hint is to use a scrap of the same plastic material of the cyano tube of glue (cut one from an used glue tube) to apply the drop and press the line to the model,so the line will adhere only to the paper and not to the appliying device.

Your rigging is perfect.I=Would be possible to see a photo a little closer in on the rigging? What did you use for the paper of the wings. That is a very nice with a slight opaque look to them. Outstanding model. Thanks you very much. wc

Thanks for the nice comments!Here they are some close ups of the riggings and the piece for gluing them.
For the wings I used a semigloss 180 gr paper and after glued in place applied a gloss acrilic varish.

Thank you for the great tips and the photos. I found a way to save your text and photos into Word into a document. Then I copy the address and paste it into the document. Then I save the document to a folder. I will be able to access this info any time I want or send it to a friend. I did the same thing with Willygoat info about the landing gear struts on to the wheel bay. Thank you for all your help.. wc

I find myself keep coming back to your model often. It's the unique appearance of your wings. I can't explain it better then that. It looks correct in every way. This is something that I wish I could do myself and coupled with making the rib's in the wing show up or pop out better in wing construction. I'm not sure if that came out correct or not. I have seen this model built by others a few times but the soft, opaque look gives it a very unique look. That really dose the job for me. I can’t thank you enough for such a caring look. Wc

Some times I have a difficult time of finding the right words to use. Sorry if it didn’t come out right.

Hello,
The right words aren't easy for me too in this forum because I live in Brazil and english is not my native language!Thanks for your nice words,Wad_Cutter.I think that the look of my models are only the result of a little persistence and most of all a permanent love for modelmaking.
best regards,
MK
