Hook and Loop Rigging
« on: February 12, 2020, 06:58:13 AM »
I saw this brilliant rigging technique described by my friend Steve Budd on Facebook and Hyperscale but since I don't think he's a member of this group, I thought I'd at least share a link to the HS posting.

I saw that posting on HS,certainly an innovative approach which should making rigging more accessible to modellers who have previously avoided it.I use structural rigging with mono so am interested in what people who use elastic think about this system.

I use both so will definitely give it a try.  It would be quite useful for installing rigging in tight places or where lines need to be disconnected for some reason.  I believe there's a WNW Felixstowe build around here where the modeler used a similar method so he could detach the wings for transport or storage.
