Micro Mini Competition entry FG Morane Sauliner N

Hello All,

Here's another 1/144 scale FG WW1 bird. The wife liked the colors and picked it as my next build up. This too is destined to be a game piece so I didn't intend to do the rigging but I will have to due to the weak mount of the wings making them droop.

Here's some build pix. Not much note worthy of comments.

More build pix. All that's left at his point is the rigging. Luckily the model has the points marked ont he wings making this a lot easier to do. Not something i have a whole lot of experience with but I guess I gotta learn.

All done :D

Realized too late that I should have ran a pin thriugh the body into each wing for support. Oh well, next time.

Rigging was fun. The bottom brace moved loosening some of the lines. I trie to heat shrink them but perhaps the nylon thread wouldn't shrink :P Oh well not too bad but it buggs me. Tagged a few spots around the landing gear to. Used too big a brush to paint the gear struts. I knew better but did it anyway :( Touch up paint didn't match up too well but at least it's on the bottom. That to buggs me, planning on re-doing this one down the road.

Still a fun build. This will be my secondary standard scale from now on. 1/72 is still my primary.

Hi G1,

Another excellent build!

You seem to have found a good scale to work in with the FG models, it looks a lot better this small.

Great build. I noticed a toothpick wrapped with some tape in one of the early photos, what is that for?

p.s., can't really see the sagging rigging - we are always our own biggest critics.
