Can I ask how you solved this?  My kit has similar issues, with a couple of the molded eyelets resembling a "C" instead of an "O" due to the slight molding mismatch.

 

 

Cut off the molded eyelets, then drill instead a small locator hole. I didnt use eyelets on this one as i was worried it wouldn't be accurate to British designs. Either way, the method i used with no turnbuckles isn't accurate either but oh well!

hope this helps

Spectacular build and finish!

 

I really like the castor oil staining on the underside of the lower wings. It looks perfect.

 

 

Don,

Thanks for the kind comments!

Thanks for the wishes Phil!

The camel will be a blast, just take your time with it it's one of the quirkier kits from wnw it just needs tender loving care and you'll have a real gem!

Did you try ebay for the EZline? i get mine shipped from a supplier in the states and they always have been top notch in dealing with. if you want i'll give you their username, the lady that owns the shop is a real nice woman !

Exquisite piece of work Karim!

I've set my Camel aside while I try to figure out the best way to use flat rigging wire together with GasPatch's terminal ends. It's a brilliant kit but does require your undivided attention to get the best results and you've certainly achieved that. So very well done Sir!

Cheers,
Wolf

It's a pleasure to read you. I pondered on the question quite a bit, the Gaspatch flat end RAF rigging terminals, but i wasn't able to work out a solution as to how to get to make the most out of them so i put them back in the stash. I'm looking forward to your solution so i can integrate it in my next build!

Thanks for leaving such a kind comment and for stopping by!

Karim
