    Well I have taken the plunge and decided to rig the new Staaken see attached pictures.
    It was a bit fiddly but I think worth the effort as it changes the model from just a model to a target aircraft?
    I used silver grey thread to give the look of steel rigging but it looks white in the pictures but I think it looks OK

    That looks wonderful.

    I just put my two Staakens in the post to you. If you could get them done and back to me by the end of October as I need them for a show early November.

    Near the back end looks like a large paddling pool to me. Those German boys have all the amenities. All we have is the bomb crater that the rain fills up each time it rains.
    See you on the Dark Side......

    Thanks for posting the pictures I had thought about doing the backend but concerned how it fits in the box?
    The addition of the horizontal wire is a possibility to the main wing the problem is fixing it to the existing cross wire thread I have tried this in the past and the glue makes the thread go brittle?
    I will have a look and see what I can do.

    Regards Kev
