I am not sure I would go with a chrome finish? polished alloy looks different and without the panel lines will just look like a film covering, just my opinion

Who fancies a go at the staining Alclad clear yellow and blue should do it

I'm pretty convinced you'll show the Classroom how to handle the staining in due time, Danny... yes devil

Cheers

Good morning.

Great info about the fasteners. cool​ Received the Wood I ordered (I will need more of a few sizes...) Also have the 5" Willians Bross wheels.

One Question. The flying wires are round or flat? I have some flat rigging wires from Mick Rives.

José Luis.

P.S.: I have a book over planes in the Civil Spanish war. There are a history about the three planes that arrived to Spain and the fouth that was built with the parts of the deceased 3. It contains drawings at 1772 scale. Not as detailed as the Westburg. I´ve scaned them.

Hi Jose, I bought some fine piano wire for the rigging, I would be interested in the Mick Reeves flat wires and ends. I thought his stuff was for slightly larger models? have you some dimensions??

Just for you Chris.....

 
Cheers

Danny,

Re Mick's flat wires here's the info from Mick's website

"Hard Stainless rigging wire. Does not get kinked in use, and is very strong.
1/16" x 0.015", £4.50
3/32" x 0.020", £4.50
1/8" x 0.030 £6.00.
These are scale size and thickness, flat with rounded edges.
Difficult to tell from the scale oval section. - 5 metre rolls"

Thanks Manish, So if I am understanding that right 1/16 x 1/64, that doesn't seem too bad.

Cheers

Danny

You're mostly welcome, Richard.

Danny, I 'got the message' for the steel staining. In fact, I just need to buy an airbrush and recluse myself in La Grotte during say at least a few months... yes

Regarding, the Fury's rigging wires aren't those just 'round' instead of having an 'ovoïd' shape?

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris, on the plan they are just round, and i might go that way, but the Mick Reeves Stainless sectioned ones do look nice and not that expensive. Even if it is just for the experience I might give them a go

For stainless we will need flux and a suitable blowlamp/torch. For piano wire normal solder will do. Plenty of time to muse on that one.

Cheers

Danny

For Mick's flat wires I got some solder and flux from him. I had never done any silver soldering before this. I was able to get nice solder joints using my Dremel versa flame. I made my first pieces for a 1/4 scale Cub tail wires and also for a 30 cc Pitts. These soldered joints have been doing good for over a year and half.

Thanks Manish, I have silver soldered before and it is fairly straightforward, but at 1/6 scale just worried the fittings will look overly large?

Cheers

Danny
