Bob,

BEAUTIFULLY rigged...looking very taut and sharp on MY iPad... :clap2:

Your WNW SE5a is FABULOUS... Impeccably finished and in MY opinion looking very STUNNING..

A great build! I especially like your use of color and weathering. The underside of the wings in particular looks really good.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom

Looks amazing Bob. I'm really envious of you guys who can make these biplanes look so good. May I publish it on the website?

Nicely done!  The delicate, understated weathering is superb.

Very impressive build - a lot of visual presence. Finishing and weathering is to be highly commended.

 

All round "very well done" from me.


KBO ............... Andi.

Very nice model ! It is a very clean build !

May i ask you which media do you use for the rigging?


Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Thanks for the kind words. The model is rigged using monofilament fishing line, .004 inches, painted with Metalizer Steel. The turnbuckles are micro nylon tubing cut to 4 MM length and also painted Metalizer Steel.

It's the rigging: I abandoned my build because I couldn't get the RAF wires to work right. Superb.
