Hey, thank you Scottie. It now needs a catapult to stand on.

Cheers,

Richard

Hi Richard,

Yes Sir, I have been trying to follow this all along. Work has taken it's toll on free time and I always seem to be playing Catch Up...

Superb job on this old beauty!!! I can't believe how great this turned out with all your tweaks and fixes. Your tensioning cables and wires (we don't use the R word) on the wings and engine are masterclass, to say the least. Congrats once again!!!

Prost

Hi Allen, thanks.

Sorry to hear about work woes. Better late than never. We'll still be here when you finish the little Fokker.

Heheheh...why not the R word?

Cheers,

Richard

Hi Richard,

Well the reason was quit simple really. When the GB began, and people chose their kits to build, everyone was real scared and or very nervous about the rigging. As the GB progressed, I figured if you didn't use the R word and went with tensioning cables and wire, people wouldn't be so scared of it.

I guess it was just one of my little quirks to try and calm the masses! Gotta go and check out your catapult now. Take care Sir and happy scratching....

Prost

Allen, tensioning cables and wire are even more frightening for me.face 20

Thanks...scratch building involves a lot of cutting so I'll keep the blades from harms way or visa versa.

Cheers,

Richard
