    I spent last night working on the prop and the wheels, and tonight I finished up the landing gear, and here is how she looks. I thought I would try to rig this one until I looked at some pictures. Yikes! I would have to run wires through the middle wing. I don't know if I'm feeling brave enough to poke holes through the wings just yet. Hmmm. . ..

    Looks great! Nice job getting the wings lined up! And from what I see, the wheels look great! thanks for sharing!

    Just to pass on a tip I use. I locate the holes for the rigging and pre-drill them either before I fold/glue the wing, or before I mount the wings. This way, I do not have to worry about doing it after the wings are attached, and, I can use it to realistically straighten sagging wings into alignment. Multi tasking, gotta love it!

    I didn't think of rigging this one until after the wings were on. Ooops! There is much to be said for thinking ahead. Thanks for the tip. I will use it on the next one.
