This is my last full build of 2016 and to be truthful it wasn't the best of kits to put together. Was quite pleased with the rigging though although I found out thet NMF and rigging don't go together well(for me anyway):huh:

finish is mainly Vallejo Metal with some bits of brush painted 'true metal'. engine 'ring' is vallejo copper.

The rigging was done by drilling half-way through the upper wing, supergleing some fishing line on then passing these through fully drilled holes in the bottom wing and tensioning then whilst gluing, again with CA(hench the messy finish near the rigging points):angry:

Anyway here it is warts and all............hope the airfix kit in the stash goes together better !!!

Looks pretty good to me. Is this the old Matchbox kit repackaged by Revell? Nice work on the rigging. Cheers Greg

One tip for rigging which has worked well for me. I place a small dot of superglue on the thread just above the point where it goes through the lower wing. When you pull it through, it should be enough to hold it in place and you get a neat finish.
