Mark and Clay..

Camo shall be added!

Been looking online past 2 days and I did find a camo scheme that I liked. Friday night I'll have an update.

Hi Daniel, looks real sharp, I have to give that a try one of these time. Congrats on crossing the finish line.

Rigging with fishing line.



Six strands per side for the main wings and two strands as control wires at the tail.

Nice, Mike!

Daniel, that looks great, although maybe put some dust on the exhaust so it's not so shiny next to the rest of it. Awesome finish!

Great finish, Daniel! If there is anything to pick at, I'd agree with Mark that the exhaust seems to be a bit shiny.

Nice, tight rigging, Mike! How do you get it to stay this tensioned?

My method. One key thing to do: support the two wings with something much stiffer/sturdier than the plastic struts. In this case I used a thin piece of aluminum tube cut to the proper length.

I drilled the holes through the wings where necessary and into the fuselage. I then put ran both ends of the fish line into their respective holes and used CA glue to glue one end. That I let fully cure. I then tugged the other end tight-ish through the other hole. This end I then clamped down. Once clamped, I used CA glue on both sides of the wing.

Once done and totally dried, I'll take a new X-Acto blade and slice off the ends sticking through and use a little Vallejo putty or Squadron putty to "seal" and smooth things up.

Way to go Sal! You're a braver man than me. I like your diorama, a well composed scene.
Take care,

Sal,
Looking great, man! Two tiny suggestions (since you already picked up on the empty cook pot;) ): Need to paint the inside of the chimney black, and recommend adding a dark wash to the potatoes in the bucket to emphasize their shape.

Quick prime just to see what the rigging looks like and what clean up might be needed where the fishing line ends came out of the wing. This'll work.
