Thread is double looped back into the bead. That's challenging for the eyes and hands.

Added wiring for the rigging yet to come. Threading the control horn. Notice the small bead on the thread.

Control horns and base prior to threading the control "cables" and adding rigging

Used glossy paper to build the base for the control horns.

In my last posting, I believe I mentioned I'll be working on the tail feathers. Here, I am fabricating the control horns. I thought I would give it a bit of "bling" by adding eyeball-straining tiny brass colored beads as bushing. I purposely had my thumb in the picture for scale. Notice the itsy bitsy tiny bead. Ouch!

if any one is interested in bondo I use this stuff in the black tube called "bondo - glazing and spot putty". It is premixed, drys fast and about $7 canadian. I find its much better for large indentations compared to the hobby lite which I cant seem to apply properly. Unfortunately the bondo does require really good ventalation because it is somewaht toxic.

End result. The cap was a small circular piece of brass that was punched out and glued on top of a small ring to give it depth. Not bad, eh?

The Vintage Aviator revealed that only on the left side was the turnbuckle. Like the small turnbuckles used in the cockpit area, I cut small sections out of .006" brass tubing and used small really tiny beads. To thread them back over themselves was a challenge.

Left a portion of the end a bit loose on purpose to give it the illusion of the cable holding it down.

Close up photos of the real plane revealed the radiator had a strap that was tied down with a cable. Used the pin to help glue on the edge of the strap.

Added some super glue to a pin so I could exercise better control where it wanted it to go.
