    Here is the fuselage with the seat, fuel tank, engine, radiator, lower
    wing spar and 6 rolled exhaust tubes. Sure wish I had a better camera
    for the pictures.

    These two pictures show the lower wing installed and the upper wing
    with the stiffener and rigging wires installed.

    Looks really nice. Some info on how to work with such small pieces would be helpful(for those of us with big clumsy hands).

    Willja67,

    There is really nothing special I do to work in this scale. Almost all of the techniques I use are the same as what you would use in the larger scales, only adapted for smaller use. Such as, only using
    one side of a doubled/folded over part, or using
    regular printer paper for rolled parts. And, it does
    need to be a little gentler cutting out parts. This small, and one slip of the blade cuts your plane in half!

    Getter,

    I am using a .004 clear nylon thread. Scales well,
    doesn't sag alot, and can be tightened up with
    a soldering iron if need be.

    And the saga continues..

    Here are the wing braces and the tail surfaces. The yellow square
    is the 1 inch square on my cutting mat.

    The next series shows the tail surfaces and wing braces installed.

    Now with the top wing installed, however the rigging is not
    threaded through yet.
