Not from this world...! How did you manage such clean rigging? What did you use for the wires? The comparison of the pilot's seat before and after is unbelievable. Agree with Pascal and Tim - wooooow!

Thanks for the kind comments. :) @Frank, it's rigged using a combination of stretched sprue and ceramic fibre for the rigging. I replaced the twin booms with carbon-fibre rod as I felt the styrene ones might bend over time.

Great job Mike !

Ben STONE
Mike, how come the top port roundel stops at the trailing flap?
15. March 2016, 07:06
Choppa Nutta
if you look underneath that wing you can see the rest of the roundel, it's as though that aileron was replaced from another planes upper right aileron and put on the upper left wing to replace a damaged one,
I get the feeling there might be a real world story behind that slightly unusual feature :)

Total guess but I reckon Mike have the answer to that curious feature :)

Lex Jassies
If you had told me it was 1/32 scale, I woud have believeth it. What a beauty!
15. March 2016, 07:49
Ben STONE
That's plausible I guess Choppa.
15. March 2016, 13:09
Cristian Bordina
I'm speechless, your model is of a beauty and precision without equal. :)
15. March 2016, 13:13
Choppa Nutta
I did wonder myself Ben, I guess we'll have to wait for Mike to provide us with the answer :)
15. March 2016, 14:31
Mike Grant
Thanks guys :) Choppa's explanation is correct. The upper and lower wings (and therefore ailerons) were interchangeable on the DH-2, so a damaged upper aileron could be replaced with the lower one from another aircraft.
15. March 2016, 16:01
Choppa Nutta
very pragmatic of the designers to build the plane that way :)
Is there a story behind this particular plane that inspired your build of it Mike ?

Erik Leijdens
Very impressive once again. Rigging is amazing Mike
15. March 2016, 22:13

Carsten Gurk
Amazing, just amazing! The DH.2 was always a dream model of mine, but that rigging is beyound my eyes and fingers.

It is brilliant! That plane is also in my wishlist. But I am a bit afraid....
15. July 2019, 15:42
Bart Goesaert
Nice work!
@Augustin: Why? You can only give it your best shot. Don't be intimidatied by looking at the results of one of the best modelers around. Look, try, ask and learn... And your work is also good... Better then mine, that's for sure
