    Rigging?

    Hello
    Todays question is for the old timey plane fan . I have a Gyspy Moth that has no rigging wires.I want to put some on just my wing struts. I have asked at several shops about the hardware to do this.I see other planes with this and they always say it came with the kit. I need the little brass fittings to tie the wires in.I have looked on the net and I have not foud what I think I need..Has anybody got a hint.
    Thankyou

    You could try these. Expensive but very scale.

    Hi,

    You might check out Dubro's web site. I know that they used to offer wire and crimps. The crimps are not much more than small tubing but they work well.

    RE: Rigging?

    For my BUSA Fokker E-90 I used dubro soldered wire ends:

    http://shop.dubro.com/products/produ...5.0.0.0?pp=12&

    Pounded the round end flat and drilled a smooth hole through the flat. Then used a normal clevis to attach the cable at both ends. I used 40 pound test fishing line more for looks than for actuall strength.

    If I was going for strength I'd go with U/C control lines.

    I can add pics if you'd like
