SE5a STGB

Recommended Posts

Let's keep the Great War in focus after the 100th anniversary.  I'm hoping I can just propose this here purely on the basis of having had the thought!

For some reason the SE5 doesn’t appeal to me - so this is the chance to ever having one: I’m signing up!

I have completely built and painted a Wingnut Wings SE5a, but haven't done the rigging, does that qualify for the 25% done rule?🤔 ....JK of course but it feels like the rigging saps 75% of my modelling spirit.

 

I would join, I'd like to build a 1/48 kit with one of the colourful 60 Squadron schemes.

I certainly endorse the idea that rigging is most of the work. I presently have four biplanes stalled due to the heartbreak of trying to do decent rigging in 1/72 scale.  I estimate my Roden Albatros has consumed about four hours in building and painting and probably approaching 20 in rigging, which might be half way done.  Ezy-Line is the devil's own rigging material.

 

With five worthy swords committed to the cause, we are on the way!

Yes, it is terrible, and all of the alternatives are worse. :D

Do you have anyone in the house with long hair? Cheap, strong, responds well to CA and PVA, good and uniform diameter. Why people bother with stretched sprue or EZ line I do not fathom. It also takes paint well, in case your source is not silver-haired:

Oh, and I just bought a preowned Roden SE5 on a sale, so I’m all set. :)

🤨

On the upside, she takes no time to get ready to go out. On the downside, I will consume all that saved time with fruitless rigging!

Hmm, I see the inconvenience. Hint that you need a dog, and if she agrees, come home with one of these:
