    Those Magnificent Men....Another rehab out of the Storage Box of BB401. A one of a kind, the AVRO IV was flown (and crashed) several times in 1911, but was immortalized in 1965, as a replica of the AVRO (still flown today) with British comedian Terry Thomas as the pilot, was flown in "The Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines; Or how I Flew From London To Paris In 25 Hours, 11 Minutes". If interested in seeing the history and the challenge in it's agonizing entirety click here:

    I chose this picture because it shows many of the rehab exercises. After some essential structural strengthening (re-attaching struts, re-gluing joints) I took to the details of the engine, cooling and fuel system construction as well as pilot painting - all in place work). I also had to hand paint the "AVRO" because old decals I tried disintegrated as I drew them from the water. Then it was time to make the decision to fully rig this 1/48 scale kite. As many have expressed, without rigging a multi-wing aeroplane looks incomplete. It took two weeks of tying, gluing, waiting, and snipping to complete the tedious process.

    The control rigging looks heavy, because it is thread that brother Bob used back in the day. It was in decent condition and I did not want to disturb it so it stayed and I continued with monofilament for everything else.

    I also applied Tamiya Weathering Master to the canvas stitching and raised frame areas to give the appearance of opaque canvas surfaces
