Revell 1/72nd De Havilland D.H.2

This one nearly sent me into the looney bin....the rigging!!!! It never seemed to end !. I had considered it everytime I saw it in a shop and everytime told myself.."NO WAY!!" Finally I convinced myself with the thought that if I can get even half the rigging done then I would be pleased...many hours and many many curses later......:-)

  4. Nicely done Paul I agree that the rigging is the tricky bit. My main problem with that particular kit was building it for game play. After the first case of broken boom syndrome I replaced the plastic ones with metal tubing for durability. and had to forgo most of the rigging. one question, did you use stretched sprue, or thread for the wires?
