Wonderful job! Are those the "Late RAF" Gaspatch turnbuckles? I've just ordered a set to try out on my SW Siskin IIIA. Do you use them at both ends of the wires or just the lower end?

Thanks!

Did u win anything at Telford with this one?

Ah, you noticed.. No, I didn't with this one - the standard was very high! I took 3 Wingnut kits & 3 1/48th Armour models (just posting those in the Armour section.. ;) ) I got 2 commendations and the Gaspatch trophy for the Albatros - I was really pleased to get anything at all as there were some incredible builds that didn't get a mention - my first proper competition and I think I'm hooked! I'm already planning what to take next year...

Hello Graham, if it's not too late I wouldn't get the RAF Gaspatch turnbuckles - although they're correct, I can't see how you'd attach the wire - there's no hole at the end... I did want to get them for this, but I just couldn't see how they would practically work :S

I ended up using Bob's Buckles for the wings and the Gaspatch 'C Type' for the tail feathers..

Hope that helps?

Regards

Guy

Absolutely love it!

Another genre (biplanes) that I keep shying away from, but would really love to have something like that in the display cabinet.
