Actually on the original aircraft there was a smal bit of rigging on the conventional undercarriage. But due to the cantilever box spars in the wings and their multiple attachment points there was no need for typical rigging layouts between the wings. There is a set of stay wires on the upper surface of the tail plane for the rudder's stabilizer and the usual control wires for the flying surfaces.

I think it's one of the easiest ww1 aircraft to build It's easy and small Cheers Nick

Beautiful job, Terri. You are definitely"Le Grande Artiste"..in my humble estimation. I tip my hat to you. Congratulations on the beautiful build. Matt

Nick, It is a great subject to build if you want to avoid rigging. It will also allow a builder to learn how to set a top wing into place. Just remember Terri makes all these early aircraft look easier than they really are.
