I’ve been working on and off on this kit for a long time. Thought I would get a little done on it. I got frustrated when I tried the rigging I doubt if I will put any rigging on this. This is what I have done so far

Looking good there Lee. I have a couple of those squirreled away, and the same Xtradecal sheet. For its age, it seems to be very nice.

Cheers,

Andrew

Looks great. Rigging just takes time. I use a pair of dividers to measure, very fine wire (.003) or whatever looks right cut to size - sometimes two tries and white glue to attach. The white glue shrinks a lot leaving little residue to notice and then a tiny drop of CA to make it permanent. It's surprising how strong the structure gets from the combined rigging in the end. It just takes patience. Go ahead. Rig it.

That has come together well Lee, and it seems to be nice kit. Plenty of choice on that decal sheet, and it looks like you need a another dozen kits!
