Looks very nice! Good job there.

If you want some serious rigging, then try to build the Boeing P-26 Peashooter in 1/72 scale!

It is very tiny and you have to rig 21 threads in a very tight space. But I managed to do it, it only took me 6 hours and lots of bad language. Good that my kids were asleep and didn't hear me.

Thanks Swede. If you're talking about the Camel I'm thinking of, I think I've figured a do-able way. The Fokker actually had cantilever wings & minimal rigging - I skipped one bit of it. ;)

Looking good! I remember the dramas you were having with this build, but it was worth it.

Thanks Hugh. I'm still disappointed about stuffing the original paint-job, but...............live & learn. ;)
