I’m attempting my first WWI aircraft since the old Revell Spad way back in the ‘60’s. 

the rigging diagram is atrocious to say the least!  

the Rigging is a major focal point of this Iconic fighter,so glossing over the diagram pretty much wants me to sell it!  

I build from scratch 16/17th century sailing ships,so I no stranger to rigging,but there is A LOT of info out there for it. 

Where can I go for in depth info including the use of turn buckles. 

Thanks in advance!

This one is an  actual  build. 


Good luck and Hello Ted.


Once you start your build, I am sure many on here who have built biplane etc will help you out.


Have a good day.

KLP PUBLISHING  (  KLP Publishing – Scale Modelling Guide Books )  has a book by Karim Bibi where he built a biplane I think and I was pretty sure it had the information  you need.

Its been a while since I bought the book...
