Lochsa_River Hello again, Elias....

Can you answer a rigging question? It seems clear what has to happen with lines coming to and from wings...the wings would be drilled through and repaired...simple enough, the holes are tiny.

But, what do you do on a connection to a fuselage that has no way to get to the other side to pull a line through?

Here is an example:

I-153 WWII China Guomindang AF Fighter (ICM 72076, 1:72)

Note that the wing attachments are simple enough, but the lines then terminate at the fuselage, not another wing.

Do you have a suggestion in that case?

Thanks again for the help!

Choppa Nutta Lovely work :)

Erik De Smet Drill a hole in the fuselage, glue the rigging line in it and work on from there to the Wings.
2. July, 11:20
Spanjaard actually you do not need to make the holes though the wings... drill a hole that does not go through, dab a tiny bit of CA at the end of the thread, and place it in the hole. works specially well if you use flexible rigging, since you can push it wait a few second for glue to cure and let it go.
you can also cut a tiny piece of wire and glue it to the end of the thread with CA, remove any excess (thread adn/of wire). add glue to the wire and stick it in the hole.
2. July, 11:22
Spanjaard very nice model Elias :)
2. July, 11:23
Elias Korompilis Thanks all!
@ Lochsa_River: what Eric De Smet said. drill and glue before assembling the fuselage.

Roger Trewenack I did a couple of turns without any throttle changes, then headed back to Duxford. The pilot took over when we got to landing approach & landing - probably a good thing!
Have probably had the controls in 4-5 aircraft, including a tandem glider - Now that was Fun!! Definitely a must try!

Roger Trewenack Hi Wilky, Steve from Ronin Graphics will be re-releasing them via facebook soon (allow a couple of weeks, I guess) His website is: https://roningraphicsaustralia.com/ - I'm gonna search for the Facebook presence.
He's just helped me out with a 1:32 Mirage set of decals, so I'm very happy with his service!!! !;^)}
13. May, 05:03
wilky No worries.
I don't do Facebook so once again I miss out

Roger Trewenack fair enough!! - I'll keep an eye out for you, if you like? I'm in FTG, Vic, by the way!
13. May, 06:00
wilky I'm in Victoria too but the other side of the state.
I couldn't work out where that was so I had to Google it.
Now I know.
I've bought some kits off of you.
I'd appreciate if you can let me know when those decals are available
13. May, 06:06
Roger Trewenack can do - no problems!
What were the kits I sold you? Hope they were to your liking?

25. April, 07:45
Ben M That had to be amazing! My dad flew in one in the 1950's
25. April, 16:52
wilky It was and it wasn't.
It was for my head but for my stomach it was hell.
I get motion sickness so every turn made my guts react badly but when flying straight and level I loved it.
My dream is to fly in a Mustang or Spitfire but they aren't in Australia so I decided on the Tiger Moth because every Fighter pilot flew a Tiger Moth

Vegard Øksenholt I hope you manage to fix it soon. It's gonna look good after you finish it :)
6. May 2015, 19:57
Kerry COX Oh, how sweet to hear one of these overhead these days, and it's even nicer to see on here on SM.

It looks so delicate and frail mate, and I too hope you can effect some repairs, as it will be a stunning little bird in the end. :)

6. May 2015, 21:12
Gordon Sørensen Patience (and glue!) have the struts repaired. Rigging started, but I think I will skip the wires on the fuselage between the wing mounts. Too fiddly and not a lot of room...
17. May 2015, 17:12
Gordon Sørensen Having issues getting a nice paint finish on the engine cowling. One more round of sand and paint.
Finally finished the flying wire rigging. Now just have to see about the control surface wires at the back....

Martien Lourens It all looks good.
26. June 2015, 13:28
Ben STONE What are you using for the rigging Gordon? It's looking good, if anyone has any tips regarding set up of struts on old planes I'd like to hear them. Can't help but think I've fudged them so far. :)

Ekki I second hat!
26. June 2015, 18:31
Gordon Sørensen Arrrgggghhh! Broke a couple more struts! Decided to just remove the top wing. I have the old tool Tiger in my stash so am going to see if I can use the struts out of that one...

18. December 2016, 18:45
Christian Bruer All, subassemblies are build and ready for further detailing. I will add some Eduard PE and some gaps have to be filled.
The fit is quite good. The wings assembly look odd first, but if everything is fixed correctly it will work out nice at the end. I will close the supports on the lower wing and drill four new holes to fix the stringers.

Cheers, Christian

29. December 2016, 20:48
Christian Bruer Thank you Stefan, Taarna and Clifford :)

There are some quite nice parts in the small Eduard PE to extra detail the exterior. Oil pipe, supports, covers and hatches, pitot tube and control levers. I forgot to cut of casted details replaced by PE, but it wasn't any problem to remove them from the already assembled model.

Carefulness was necessary drilling 0,3mm holes next to each strut as a location hole for the later rigging. I plan to try a technique used by my mate Axel – high stretched elastic rigging material threaded on a stretched sprue made of a small tube of a Q-Tipp. The stretched sprue will be fixed at the end of each stay and glued into the holes.

Cheers, Christian

Greg Baker OMG That is awesome. Do you have a build log? I'm planning on doing the exact same thing and I want to steal all your good ideas.
5. October 2016, 08:54
Uwe Kaeding Not for this one as it is basically straight out of the box - the only additions are the Blue Rider decals and the Modelkasten wire rigging. The colour is Humbrol Trainer Yellow and it is pretty simply weathered with a Florey weathering wash. The kit is really beautifully engineered and its easy to make a nice replica.
5. October 2016, 09:31
Greg Baker It looks great! Have you seen the Blue Rider books? They're chalk full of ideas... I've already (barely) started on the Chipmunk... But the Tiger Moth is high on my list.
5. October 2016, 10:22
Uwe Kaeding Yes, I've got them both in electronic version and the combined hard copy - great references. I've started on the Chipmunk as well. Done the interior and spats for the wheels, Slowly working on rescribing - should really add a WIP gallery.
5. October 2016, 10:28
Greg Baker After I posted I saw the rest of your projects and realized you must've studied those references already. This is super easy, now I'll just follow all the kits and adjustments! I also grabbed an Arado Ar 196 A-3 and am working on the Curtiss Seahawk. ;) I MUST see your WIP gallery... I've barely got the Chipmunk off the sprues and started shaving "rivets". Haven't got near the interior and was wondering how best to handle the wheel spats.
5. October 2016, 10:36
Uwe Kaeding FYI I also just found out today that Unicraft have made a kit of the Hiller UH-4 (the helicopter in Destination Moon). Just ordered it this morning from Fantastic Plastic in the US (fantastic-plastic.com/hiller..icopter-by-unicraft.html)and hope to see it soon.

Bruce Grayson Thanks for your comments. Time just does march on, Maarten. The wings have been criticized in the past, but for the record, they have the same scale span, sweep and chord as the Matchbox 1:32 scale kit, which I'm using for comparison. The dihedral of the lower wing should be 9 degrees. This should be checked. The upper wing has 4.5 degrees dihedral. The nose is a bit short, and the cowling is short. The width of most of the fuselage should be about 1mm greater. The kit's interplane struts are the right length. That's as far as I've gotten with checking the parts to date. The empennage shapes are a bit off.
