WNW SE.5a Hisso
« on: August 09, 2015, 03:27:54 AM »
D3540 "K"  Vickers built  from 40 Sqn. flown by Capt. G.H. Lewis.

This kit had more rigging  than anything I have tried to build so far.  All the double wires taxed my vision and nerves to the limit.  However, I had a blast building it.  Maybe I'm ready for something more complicated.  or not........

   From the results I see on this one I'd say so, Robert. The Se5a is a tough job of rigging, or was for me IIRC, and you've aced it! I'd say you're ready for the ultimate test of your nerves, get a DH.2 or a "Fee" and have at it!! ;)
Nicely done model!
Cheers,
Lance

  Robert,
Honestly my friend you have nothing to worry about.You're ready for something more complicated and your beautiful Se-5a shows that so well. You've got yourself one excellent Se-5a. Well Done!

Wonderful model, beautifully finished and superbly rigged.

I agree with Lance - if you want something a little more taxing to rig try a pusher such as the Gunbus or FE 2, or even a monoplane such as the Taube (early). A Maurice Farman Longhorn could be fun too…...

Very nice indeed, Robert. I can never tire of seeing an SE5a. You bet you're ready to tackle even more challenging rigging. Maybe a DH2 beckons?

Best wishes
Nigel

Thanks for the kind words. 

I had so many screw ups on this kit, I'm just happy to finish it.   (have ya ever gone in with a pair of sizzers to trim the end of a line only to cut some already finished lines?  aaaarg

If you haven't made that mistake then you haven't rigged a WWI airplane! ;D
