Very nice! Good rescue.

Thanks for looking in and commenting. Greatly appreciated! Just the rudder, control, landing gear, and cabane  rigging to go as far as construction. I still have some weathering to do also.

The two Triplanes nearing completion. Just rigging and a tad of touch up needed.

Rick,
Outstanding pair of Tripes my old friend. Love them both but the VR kite really stands out. Her red paint is spot on to my eyes. By far the best red shade I've seen period. Well Done my old friend.
Highest Regards
