    Just making sure I've got plenty to do when I get back into retirement on June 8th. Methinks I'd better slow down on the buying or I'll have no pennies left to do anything else but build the stash!

    Lovely kits dave , i always like the look of biplanes but the rigging still makes them a very infrequent subject on my bench

    Some nice kits there Dave.
    I've always fancied doing a Wingnut wings biplane but the cost puts me off.

    Thanks guys.

    I can't remember ever having built a biplane, but getting the wings right and the rigging have put me off. The jig should help with the wings and I've seen a few alternate methods for the rigging. Hopefully one or more methods will work for me but we'll have to see.

    I have been pondering getting this kit since it came out and finally got one while in my LMS. It is streets ahead of all previous Airfix Seakings but still has its deficiencies - lack of rotor head detail, the engine cowling is a bit sparse and so is the EAPS/SNIPS filter. But I was pleased to see that a door mounted jimpy and pintle is included, I see an RAF Aldergrove machine being built.
