Wow Iggie mate, that is brilliant! I've also recently completed one of these and I was going to put it on the forum, but it pales into insignificance compared to this. I feel a bit embarrassed by it now.....

Once again, superb mate, in every way!

A great build. WW1 planes are my favourite topic and I would be proud of what you’ve achieved. You should do some more and convert to the dark side. :mrgreen:

Does that mean I can build a Tie fighter and pretend it's a bipe on its side? :-D

Yes. But only if you do all the rigging and external control cables..... :-D

Wow :wanw That's amazing.

How on earth did you manage to do all that rigging and not tie yourself in knots?? Great job, keep it up.

Thank you Miss-stang.

Keeping all the rigging apart is tricky especially if one length snaps and wraps itself around some of the others and gets glue on them.......
