AIMS 32PE010 Sopwith Camel bracing wires

Recommended Posts

Interesting for sure.   As long as the lengths are dead on, this could be a very useful set.   I wonder if those wires are supposed to be connect to the airframe with turnbuckles or directly?

The turn buckle is part of the design - can hardly be seen and not the best for realism to be sure but the only way to do it in 2D! They are measured precisely requiring a small pilot hole where WNW stipulate and into that goes a small part of the connection tab at the ends of the parts. It works guys - done it on my Eduard 1/48 Gladiator, all off SBS product test shots, my Airfix Walrus and 1/32 ICM 153. All sets have a test shot first - it is needed as the parts need to fit to perfection. Obviously drilling as deep as one can go as well as keeping as much of the connection tab increases your flexibility - no pun intended but the designs are done in Stainless so that they are not flexible! Drilling into the kit in same direction as travel of bracing wire is essential due to the rigid stainless material.
