Along with tissue covering, bending up wire for struts, undercarriage, tail wheels and propshafts is one of the trickiest elements of building balsa models.
As I began bending up the wire for my latest little project, I remembered that some years ago, Andrew Darby visited our old workshop in Ashford and I took a series of photographs and a few video clips of him bending up the tailwheel and undercarriage for the MFM Tiger Moth.
I wrote up a wire-bending guide based on these pics and videos that used to live on our old website.
This guide was lost when we changed website provider a few years ago, but I found it in our archives and thought now would be a good time to reinstate it.
Here's the link to the guide:
Hopefully you'll find it of use when it comes to your next project.
