Hi all,
Moving on.
The models has been pre-rigged with 0.08 and 0.12 mm diameter mono-filament with blackened 0.4 and 0.5 mm diameter Nickel-Silver tubes.
The landing gear, tailplane/elevator assembly with support struts, rudder and the interplane struts have all been fitted.

Next up is fitting the upper wing with its rear cabane struts then final rigging,

Mike

Hi all,
Upper wing with rear cabane struts fitted.
All inter wing rigging fitted using 0.12 mm diameter mono-filament and 0.4 and 0.5 mm diameter blackened Nickel-Silver tube.

Now it's onto the rear fuselage and the flight control rigging,

Mike

Watching every step he posts building these models, and I still don't understand how he makes plastic look real.

Hi all,
Rudder and elevator control cables are now rigged.
Lewis machine gun and aileron control bell-cranks fitted.
Just the windscreen, extended loading handle for the Vickers machine gun and propeller to fit.

Then it's onto the figures,

Mike

Hi all,
Windscreen assembly, Vickers extended cocking handle and the Lewis gun trigger cable added (0.2 mm diameter lead wire from 'Plus Model').
So just the figures to assemble and paint now.
Then wait for the display case and propeller to arrive (UK postal strikes permitting of course).

Mike

Hi all,
The pilot and mechanic figures are finished now.
Apart from waiting the arrival of the display case and propeller, this build is finished.
I'll post the completed build eventually (postal strikes permitting).

Once again, thanks for your comments and support.
Now it's onto the Fokker E,IV build.

Take care and have yourselves a great Christmas,

Mike

Hmm. Those two appear to be also waiting for the arrival of the propeller and display case!

Mike;

It's been some time since I commented on your builds. I do however continue to watch the progress regularly.

I, however, could not go without commenting on the great weathering of the clothes on the two figures. They are exception! The subtle dirt and wear on the jacket sleeves and the ground in dirt and oil on the pants is awesome!!

Cudos mate, and have a great Christmas with family and friends!

Cheers!

A wonderful build done to your consistently high standards! Have always appreciated the graceful lines of the Niieup. 17 to 27 series, so this model is particularly nice to see, especially in its default silvery covering.

Cheers all & happy aero-modelling,
