Since I seem to have developed a habit of starting a kit and never
finishing it, I thought I might as well start this habit on my
collection of WWI aircraft. If I have to have bits of thread all over
the place, it just is not gonna happen. If I can build and paint
first and then add rigging, the thing just might get built.
Thought I read over the years that an alternative to rigging is
cutting sections of wire and just inserting them in the holes where
the thread would go. A bit of CA glue and its all done.
I have the 1/32 and 1/28? Revell kits to build (Spad, Camel, Fokker
tri wing, etc) . Is there an appropriate size wire for this scale?
Hoping that thin wire will not sag.
And just is the rigging used on the planes made of? Is it wire or
rope of some kind? And I noticed in the instructions that they make
no mention of what color rigging is. Ideas on that one?
thx much - Craig
