Wingnut Wings Sopwith Triplane 'Black Maria'


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 Wingnuts beautifully crafted Sopwith Triplane has been fumbled together by me over the course of the last 9 months. For anyone who knows me, that is RAPID! 

I can't fault the kit. It is pure New Zealand Gold. The only thing I can fault is my need to try to make everything look perfect. I'm sure I can work on that imperfection and as a result build more kits. 

 

I have one image for now, but will upload more soon. 

 

Cheers my dears

Love the 'reproduced' pose of the model & original photo, what an amazing job you have done Bob.

We need more pictures, not soon, but now :wink:.

 

Waiting with anticipation,

 

Cheers

Very good! What did you use for the rigging?

I used Maxima Fishing line for the rigging. A combo of 2lb and 1.5lb breaking strains. Eyelets (It's what I do!) and 1mm cuts of 0.5mm Nickel Silver tube.

 

Cheers!
