Eduard Dh2 Rigging Info Needed

Recommended Posts

Can't help with the rigging, but that is a sweet kit. I'd do it if I had a trained rigging spider.

Bob,

 

Eduard site has instruction sheets for their "real" DH-2 kits ...

Try these 3 links from the Profi-Pack kit:

I also found this three view that has the underside of the nacelle shown. I don't know why the last one posted twice. Sorry.

And Bob........a suggestion..............Use Stretched Sprue!!!!!!! You'll need a ruler/Dividers.....#11 Blade........Elmers Glue & tweezers!

Boy I'll tell you what, I wouldn't use stretched sprue for the DH2. While you go in to heat shrink one wire you'll be damaging the others already in place. I'd bite the bullet, get a pair of dividers and put each wire on one at a time in the exact length it needs to be. Work from the inside out. If you can, rig the booms before you install them (the cross bracing I mean) making that an integral part of the sub assembly. I'm not one to use drilled holes to rig. I use CA+accelerator or Testor's Clear Parts Cement to install rigging on my WWI a/c.

Not to mention my OPTIVISORs...

 

Hey, at least it'll be easier to rig than my 1/72 scale DH 2 was! Mine wasn't rigged accurately, but I got it rigged using 'invisible' nylon thread that was smaller than 2lb. test line. Feel free to check it out on my Thread posted below.
