So, time to begin putting this 'baby' together...

Started the assembly and rigging of the tail too.

This is my first time using GasPatch turnbuckles. They are indeed very nice, but tend to break, I will have to be careful using them.

 

Cheers: Kent

After a week of rigging the Aeromarine is beginning to come together...

I've been dreading the rigging of this huge biplane, but it has been welcome diversion, concentrating on the rigging process.

I know there's still a lot of rigging remaining, but it's no longer as intimidating as I initially thought.
