The old kit but still come up nice. Rigging g done with the wire that came in the kit. I want to try using EZ Line when I can get some. Looks interesting. Hope you like all.

  1. Another nice Bipe, great job.

  2. Paul, nice job on the Atakombo, not usually seen or built. Nice looking looking Zero trainer, as well.
    What orange did you use?
    Used the wire in it, I'd forgotten they did that. I thought it a nice touch, as I was (then) using whatever black thread I could find in my Mothers sewing stuff. Looked like hawser, I recall.

    • Thank you. I used modelmaster enamels but added yellow to tone it down a lot. Tried to match it to colour photos on the net, so not sure about complete accuracy. I think it's close. The wire in the kit was great. Nice touch, and have a bit left over for the next biplane. 🙂

  3. A really eye-catching scheme.

  4. Nice build,'s where you can get that EZ line (good stuff) -

  5. As Rob put it, definitely eye catching.
    Nice build too mate.
    Well done sir.

  6. I agree with Rob and Simon, and very neatly built, too.

  7. Interesting subject. Well constructed.
    Going to look into some history of this biplane.

  10. I love the biplanes from the 1930s. You've done a superb job on this one! Excellent work Paul!

  11. Very nice work on this old kit, Paul. Newer mono-filaments notwithstanding, nothing looks more like wire than wire. Congratulations!
