I tightened up the Main rigging lines today. It only took about 20 minutes and unusually for Me I had no issues  ::) Next up is adding the control lines and gear rigging, then painting the wires and adding smoke and mirror buckles!

Great build and rigging. You say you're gonna paint the riggingwires. Does the paint stick well to the monoline? Can't you use a sharpie?

Thanks for the comments. I have used Sharpies in the past before attaching. I looked at some of the builds Des posted and realized I liked his "Steel" painted wires. So I have been painting them using Valejo steel thinned considerably. Works just fine!

Looking fantastic, I am getting very envious of all these beautiful 1/32 subjects.  :)

Thanks  for the comment. I wish I could build two TINY Pfalz aircraft from scratch  ;D  I only have a few parts left to attach and still a tad of weathering to do on the upper wings of the Nieuport. The rigging is finished and I added the control rods to the upper wing.

Wonderful to see this one lining up on final, Rick. Besides all of the great work you've put into this one as illustrated thus far, the very subtle contrast between the cowling and silver dope really highlights your mastery of the craft.

Without any politeness regarding the break of the Pfalz I honestly can say that this is a fantastic model in a great paint sheme, Rick.

Thank You for the kind comment! I used a Satin varnish on the Fabric .
 and gloss on the cowling. I think it gives the right impression.
