Gordon:

I haven't modeled a biplane yet. But based upon your pictures I can certainly appreciate the advantages of rigging with the upper wing off. I'll have to remember your approach when I tackle one. Great job on rigging and wing ribs!! - ken

  Thank you Paul and Ken.

 
  Shouldn't take too long to finish off now.
  The next thing on the to do list is an engine.
  Got some time off tomorrow so I'll make inroads into it then.

 Cheers

Thank You Lou, Peter and Ken,

 Have added the wire bracing on undercarriage.
 Hopefully will finish it off on the weekend when I get home.

 Cheers

 Had to repair some minor crush damage when I got home and removed it from the carry box.

 Finished.
