Roden WW1 models
« on: April 28, 2012, 03:28:03 AM »
Hello;
I was wondering if the models from Roden have the rigging points marked and do they come with good rigging diagrams. Also same question about Eduard models.

Thanks
Bill

Um, for the Roden kits (at least my dh4) that would be a big, fat, no. Especially the rigging "diagram" which is an even bigger, fatter, NO.

Eduard does provide rigging diagrams, you can download most of their kit instructions before even buying the kits too.

I should clarify my vehement post above. First, rigging points are not marked. Second, there is a rigging diagram, but it leaves a lot to your imagination.

most roden and eduard kits provide at least a rudimentary rigging diagram. but looking at real photos and references is the only way to be accurate, most are kinda vague.

Rigging diagrams with most kits can be somewhat vague, even the Wingnut instructions can be a little confusing, the best reference is to look at photos then draw your own rigging plan. As far as rigging points marked on Roden kits, afraid not.

Afraid no rigging points, also with Roden 1/32 be careful of the engine fit, it is very, very, very tight, test fit with every bit you add.

Cheers
