Rigging is thankfully completed. Now a couple of evenings of touch up and I can get the Eduard Hellcat started.
I'll get to doing some better photos in a week or so and post them on Plastic Pics when I do.

It is funny to see the BE12 as it shows the thinking that morphs the BE2c into the SE5a.

Magnificent looking build of a not often seen aircraft. Adios, Larry.
Field Artillery brings dignity to what otherwise might be merely a vulgar brawl.

That's outstanding! What did you use for turnbuckles?

Turnbuckles are scratched out of amber polymide tubing and...
|August 15 2012, 8:42 AM |
...electric motor armature wire. I take the wire and tightly twist it around the end of a paperclip, yielding a nice, round little "eyelet" and then cut the twisted shaft to less than half the length of the polymide tube. Once two eyelets are made, I C/A them into the ends of the tubing. It is a little tedious, but seemed to work alright. Once you get going, the time flies and before you know it they are done...and you should have gone to bed several hours earlier.
Give me a week or so and I'll get some decent photos up on Plastic Pics.
