Aeromarine 75/Curtiss F-5-L (Finished)

Recommended Posts

Creative technique.  Great tip and results.  Thank you.

This is what tortured me way back in 1959 when I was attempting to build this:

 

HWK-617-asterisk--2.jpg?v-cache=1572976444

I could never align the wings.  And after I did, the whole assembly kept tipping over.  I guess I didn't allow the glue time enough to dry.  But what did I know?  I was 7.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Rigging done. Man that was a lot of threading!!!  Went very well though, no 'incidents' or 'accidents'.  I made the wings detachable, that made it all a lot easier.

I really can't believe that I'm almost finished with the Aeromarine build, I'm so proud of 'her'.

 

Cheers: Kent

Wow, that's gorgeous!

I can't even make any jokes about it anymore...

 

Are you saying the top wings are detachable?
I guess you can't remove all the wings with the rigging on, can you?

Wow Kent, a truly unique and amazing build and  you should be rightly very proud. 

 

Would be interesting to see her sat side by side with a Felixstowe.

I had the same question as Juraj. Surely you can no longer easily detach the wings now that the rigging is in place.

We need some clarity. My assumption is each pair of wings separates from the cabane and central part of the wing. That way you could rig the cabane and centre, and each wing pair separately

 

@kkarlsen??

But there's also rigging going from the outer wings to the forward fuselage and tailplanes, so I can't see an obvious way that you could detach the wings without messing that up.

Exactly the same comments that everyone else has already mentioned.  Simply stunning build here Kent.  I love those massive wings with rigging.  The wow factor is evident throughout your entire build.  

 

Well done.

Having rigged my DH.2 in stages, any simplicity you can create helps. So, no - you can't put all the rigging wires in place. You could rig the bays of the wings though

 

And I'm guessing - only Kent knows @kkarlsen?

What you do is just so over the top, Kent.  This is remarkable.  I can't believe how square the wings are.  With their length I was sure there would be some drop.  Congratulations on another wonderful build.

 

Sincerely,

Mark
