Andonio - you have answered a question for me as I want to drill holes in the top wing for my FB 5 and was thinkig how I could do this and get it right first time. Now I know! Brilliant idea which another moddeller has just put into his box of tricks. Many thanks for showing us.

Stephen.

Glad you took advantage out of this technique Stephen.
I haven't invented it although I don't remember where I saw it first time.
I already used it on my Roden 1/72 Albatros W4 6 yrs ago

Antonio, how do you push ezline through the small holes, like in your anchor points?

This gives me a lot of trouble, especially when going into brass rod. The ezline likes to catch.

Softscience, I have no particular method to push the line into the holes, just use tweezers and an ocean of patience...
:-)
sometimes I help the insertion by cutting the tip of the line in "diagonal" with very sharp small scissors, in order to have a smaller tip.

I personally think this is your best rigging to date. Not saying there was anything wrong with prior builds ,this  one just looks crisp! I am really looking forward to the completion of this one!

Thank you Rick, I agree with you, due to its complexity I put much more care in it, it is not yet complete, keep tuned!

Hallo,
I show here new photos of my work, they apparently don't differ from the previous set, but now all the wing and inter-wing apparel is complete, I added the cabane struts + rigging, the aileron cables, some "rigid" cables or struts that are among the two wings (same will be from the undercarriage and the lower wing.

Now the photos. I hope you'll like them although they unmercifully show all the imperfections... :-O





















Next step will be to complete the lower face of the lower wings: Undercarriage and bombs. I must be very careful because the wings are very long and they are not bound so stiffly to the fuselage...

Thanks for your attention!

Antonio

The complex rigging is very well done. I'm looking forward to see your Breguet standing on its feet.
Ciao

Thanks guys,
I completed the work this morning, here are the pictures:























(the twin Lewis fell off their support while taking the pictures, so you see them in 2 different positions!)

Thanks for watching!
