Hi TF,
here I am back from holidays.
Very hard work indeed. A burning piece of incense... seems it has worked well.

Thank you Jason and Massimo. I am calling it finished for now.











I made the hinges from transparent tape I pre-painted. I find the self-stick property helpful.





I made the number on the tail with the only white numbers I found in my spare decal collection, a nearly forty-year-old ESCI decal for the FW-200. I coated the decal with Microscale Superfilm before attempting to cut them out. I made the "P" from a "1" and the top part of a "2." This was on one side. On the other side, I made the less successful looking one from a "1" and the top part of a "9." Try to spot which side. Afterwards, I saw one source that says the number should be "P-1763," and I have no reason to doubt this, interpreting from the blurred images I have.



Than you all for your help and comments. This is my first finished airplane in 25 years and my first rigged biplane. I will take a breather and build a two -foot-long modern submarine that has a few parts--big ones--and will paint it with spray cans.  Smiley

Very nice work, all your efforts have led to an excellent model. It has much more details than the kit out of the box.
What is your next project? Another Soviet plane?

Thank you Massimo. I might build a Mig-25 or an I-16 after I recover with a submarine. I would like to make a correction: the reference says the tail number should be "P-7163." TF

Excellent job, TF!  Hard to believe this is your first attempt at rigging.

Thank you Jason and Massimo. A friend gave me a Trumpeter 1/144 scale "Kilo" class submarine, the same type where there was a fatal explosion recently in India. I may build that one to remember the victims. Then it's back to aircraft. I also have an Airfix Wallace & Gromit kit that looks fun. Something that does not involve tweezers is what I need now. TF

A Kilo in 1/144... looks an huge model. I didn't know of the accident to the Indian submarine.
