Cybermodeler Online. Notice: The appearance of U. Air Force, U. Army, U. Navy, U. Marine Corps, U. A biplane without rigging looks like a man walking down the street without any trousers. Rigging is not hard to do; it has a bad name because it is a slow and tedious job waiting until the glue on each wire is firmly dried before proceeding with the next step.
Many good methods are available on the Internet. However, this article contains methods I have never seen in print. One friend did obtain the Aeroclub product and he said it did all that was claimed; only fault being it could not make the coffee. At the end of that time he was very hungry. This why I and many others use Platyl fishing line which does all we need. Quite possibly there are other brands that will do the same job but Platyl is in plentiful supply here. How long does it last? I have no idea, the only evidence I can give one of my first efforts rigged 35 years ago has one wire fallen out and the unpainted fishing line yellow with age.
So I purchased such a line. Unfortunately their letter is lost amongst the myriads of papers so am unable to give the diameter of the thinner wires between the struts. Many modellers prefer to use stretched sprue or fine stiff wire. Useful tip here is to drill the upper hole much deeper than the bottom which is little more than a scratch on the wing surface.
In the early days I pulled the lines very tight when doing one wing. The other wing proved impossible to rig correctly and, looking from above I saw the first rigged wing was at a very very incorrect angle to the fuselage. Only solution was consigning it to the scrap bin. From this I learnt to pull taut — not tight- and also do one wire on one wing then one wire on the other wing and so on until the rigging is complete.
Before any assembly of the model mark and use a pin vice drill to drill where each wire will go. The bit size is slightly larger than the wire you are using.
You need something that will make a small dip into the plastic. Said dip prevents your drill bit from jumping out and marking the plastic. A small nail lightly tapped with a hammer is efficiently for this purpose. If you have a radial engine check and see if the engine can be fitted after assembly and rigging. No great drama if this cannot be done. Just remember never to fit the control column into place when assembling the cockpit.
Two types of holes can be drilled, the choice of which to use is yours. One is a blind hole which only goes part-way through the plastic and the other which goes all the way through. Using a blind hole I tie a simple knot at one end of the line and trim off the surplus. The hole drilled is large enough to take the knot. Once the knot is in place then glue it. The knot means a greater gluing area therefore a stronger join.We are honored to say that we have made models for 4 U.

Wright Brothers Airplanes and Stuff.Hello and welcome to my World War 1 aircraft models site. Another long break in modelling followed whilst I served in the Royal Air Force and later, as a civilian Technical Author. My preference has always been aircraft of the period covering World War 1 and the models I build are in scale.
These build logs detail, where possible, details of the pilot and of the particular aircraft. They also include reference material photographs and drawings as well as full stage by stage chapters on how the model was constructed.
The build logs are for modellers to download and use as either a building guide or as reference material. About e: sandbaggeruk sky. After leaving school at the age of 15 I took up an indentured engineering apprenticeship as a toolmaker.
After I completed my apprenticeship, I worked on as a skilled toolmaker for a few years before deciding to join the Royal Air Force in I continued in this role untilwhen I retired from full time employment. Occasionally I convert models to represent aircraft types that are not available. More models will be added to this site as they are completed. I hope you find my models of interest.
