This is awesome - and perfectly timed.  I'm just getting to rigging my first WW1 plane (WNW Fokker Eindekker E3).  The tutorial is really well written and illustrated, and puts everything together in one place in a really easy to understand way.

Many thanks!

Thanks for the great tutorial!  Since my sum total rigging experience is the 4 wires on the W.29's floats, this will come in very handy.

Des and PrzemoL,

I've created a PDF file from the individual pages of the tutorial.  Is it okay for me to post it here for the convenience of other members who'd like to download it?  The file is 4.75mb, and is a standard Adobe PDF file created with Acrobat Pro.

Great presentation. I've been rigging using the "tube and eyelet" system for years yet learned several really neat "tricks" here. Well done, and Thanks! 8) 8)

The rigging is what turns an "ordinary" plastic kit into a special model, virtually unique in the genre for aircraft.  I assume that most kits don't have any rigging material therefore this is something we all end up scratchbuilding.

Thank you for putting up the guide.
