    I hope the child is ok.

    However, the landing gear problem might be better served if you cut a little extra
    paper on the inside (hidden) portion of the landing gear part, begin to roll the part, coat the inner areas with CA to harden, and then continue rolling the extra
    material tightly to the inside. Then, you could coat with CA, just to give it the extra strength. Gotta be careful tho. To much CA will crystallize, turn white, and cause a sandpaper like texture to occur. If you wind up with a shiny part, you could then spray a matte finish on it to take off the shine.

    HOLY COW! I am glad he is ok :( How old is the child?

    You can use thread for all the rigging. You can coat it with white glue hang a weight on the end and tie it up to dry straight. Or you can just sew it through the wing and pull it taught :)

    sanded down toothpicks would work fine for the landing gear if you are careful to not change the size of the finished piece too much.

    That could have been tragic. Was the child injured? I'd be leery of matchsticks and the like as they could cause the same kind of problem as the wire. Not to belabor the point - best thing is make certain they are out of young nephew's reach when he comes over. Glad it was no worse.

    How's the plane, btw?

    Is it too late to get into this marathon?

    I've been busy for the last 3 months and stumbled onto this thread when I was browsing through the forum. Really, I've gotten more into photography and completed models would be a great subject for me to play around with. All the free models I have done in the past have been "crashed" while my son plays with them before I've taken any pictures. LOL!
