      I take these days work on the flyer, 1903, I had stopped because 'the guy wings, continues to grow or shrink, maybe the humidity problems,' do not know if others have had my problem, I thought of ending all ties when they settled, I found on the Internet even a drawing of reinforcements cover the wings, unfortunately I lost the link, but are uncertain about what to do, a test with the sewing thread I was not satisfied, the white wire which is also used Pocher in cars, in the shop site, it might be good?

    first test to see the effect of the cables that hold the fabric wing, the wire and 'a normal sewing thread to my mother, I do not know' yet where to put the node to avoid bad effects, I have not found a picture for a comparison, what I'm doing can 'be realistic?

    When using the sewing thread, drag the thread across a bar of beeswax anfd then through your fingers, this gets rid of all the little hairs on the thread. Then when you string your lines for turnbuckles I use 1/32" tube and thread first through the tube, through the attaching loop or hole then back through the tube using a needle threader from a sewing store and attach a little fishing lead weight to the end of the line to hold tight and touch a drop of CA to the thread in the tube. Look at my Sopwith Camel.

    I have a question to ask those who have finished the flyer Model A. installation was indicated in the instructions to make two holes in the frame structure and canard and fix everything, but so 'doing everything remains rigid. I gave him a stir thought that originally the canard was mobile. and 'a correct solution oe' correct in its fixed position as per instructions above MA? the picture shows the holes that were dictated by the instructions,

    I tried to attach the cables to draw the canvas, but the aesthetic result does not satisfy me, I also tried to make a partial coverage of the wings,

    Hey marco, that's an absolute first rate model. I love the way you have it in the display case. It's definitely museum quality and there's no question about that. That's the kind of thing I live and breath for.
