    Thank for your comment. I am happy that someone liked my work.
    Polish with sandpaper and stained body.





    Wire to scale. Rotates from 4 wire.


    Next the cables will be pulled at the corners.

    I love your attention to detail ! You may also want to consider posting this over on:
    Welcome to The Aerodrome - Aces and Aircraft of World War I as the Bleriot is considered to be a WW1 airplane.There is not a lot of 1/16th stuff going on these days but more and more modelers are slowly getting into it.Spreading the news around really helps.

    Thanks For the nice words, but I think I still have a lot of effort invest, because perfection has no borders. And I forgot to mention that plane will be controlled from the pilot cabin (pulling the helm move elevators, etc.).
