Many thanks my friend !

I pick up the smoke thread at a fabric shop ( Fabric Land ) don't know if you have then down in Ontario but any fabric store should have it . Maybe even walmart ( wally world ) .

twist away !!!!! I learned the method on this site either from Lars or Hugh can't remember off hand .

Just a stunning model. You really hit one out of the park, Terri. And, I still say you gave the best explanation of rigging one of these beasts that I've ever read. That alone rates this feature as priceless. Congrats.


Cheers,
Mike

Nice one Terri, Food for thought on rigging, and one of my favourite German aircraft, and I have one in the stash. Well done

Great build, Terri. Definitely some good tips on what to look out for and how to go about the rigging.

Thanks for sharing
