Hello, friends! I am about to buy a Wingnut Wings Camel. My first biplane and it needs to be rigged. I have looked at EZ line as rigging material but I am not impressed with the roll that I have and was considering black monofilament fishing line. What pound test would be appropriate for a 1/32 scale model? I cant use line diameter since that is not usually listed on US fishing line boxes. Can monofilament be tightened with heat? If you know a better way than monifilament, I would LOVE to hear about it.

Rigging the outside of a biplane AFTER you have spent hours painting it scared the knickers off of me. If you have a technique that works well, I would LOVE to hear about it.

TIA for your expert advice. happy.gif
