Cheers Steven,

I was a little worried about getting the seat to look right but it turned out pretty good in the end

Thanks Fabian,

I think it's looking a bit too clean at the moment but I'm hoping a little bit of wash will give it some signs of use.

The rigging is going to be a test for sure lol

Bad hands today so I didn't manage to get as much done as I'd planned but I'll post the progress anyway

Sidewalls are getting the details sorted out and the first bit of internal rigging is on.

I'm not sure if I have a bad bottle of Vallejo brass as it taking a load of coats to cover even after I got into the bottle and mixed it with a Tamiya stirrer, it's also a bit lumpy compared to my other Vallejo metallics


I used the Prym knitting elastic for the rigging as its a little bit thicker than the Uschi one, I'm going to tint it with a dark wash so it shows up better inside the cockpit



It's got a nice "steampunk" vibe going on

One side rigged


This pic shows how incredibly small the fuselage of this plane is, there's no rear fuselage as its all just a framework.

These planes really were like kites


And strengthening cables finished on this side too. Working with the elastic thread is a bit fiddly but not as bad as I thought it would be.

It remains to be seen if I will still feel that way when I get to the main rigging though lol !

The fit really is excellent and just clips together.

Nothing is glued yet as I need to do a bit more work to the cockpit and sort out the seat belts before I can seal it up




The thread after a quick brush of wash. One more should do the trick and they really need it here or they will be invisible against the wall which will be painted a linen colour

What glue did you use for the rigging ? Did you dip the end of the "cables" in the glue or aplly it otherwise. I really would
like to know because i need to rig my stearman, just waiting on the material.

Looks fantastic btw.

Pete, you make styrene [and any other material for that matter] look like everything except what it really is. Master work! Inspiring!

Just amazing work here, Pete. Nigel really saw that you could handle this one, for sure. And I'm glad he did.

Cheers Thomas !

I used loctite super glue gel for the cables. I applied a tiny dot of it with the sharpened point of a toothpick where the cable was going to go and held the cable on it with tweezers.

On some of the other cables ( shown in my next update ) I drilled a 0.3mm hole and put the dot of glue in it and then added the cable, the gel doesn't grab instantly so gives you a little more time to work.

It's tricky as the elastic thread I'm using seems to want to stick to everyhting except the area I want it too and a couple of times it got stuck to the tweezers and I ripped it out when I tried to let go lol, but I've never used it before and expected a few teething troubles, I think I'm getting the hang of it a bit more now


Pete
