'As previously mentioned in one of my past posts, trying to figure out how to attach the turnbuckle/rigging to the wing strut bracket. Initially thought of using fishing line to loop around and pull the rigging, but would leave the fishing line exposed as well as dealing with the beaded turnbuckle.

I could've used tiny hooks as anchor points for the double rigging at the fuselage, but a close up photo shows it to have a special bracket. So, decided to try as best as I could.

Getting there. When the rigging is completed, then I'll install the landing gears. I wanted to avoid any potential damage to the gear while man-handling the model during rigging.

As much as I didn't want to paint over such a nice brass finish, they were painted flat black as per real aircraft
