Norman Veber's Nieuport Ni-17

(click the image to go back)

Norman used .005" stainless steel wire for the elevator and rudder control lines. For the flying wires, landing wires, and undercarriage bracing wires, he used .005" "Wonder Wire, " a very rigid ceramic wire. He replaced the plastic tail plane braces supplied in the kit with flat wire and photo-etch bolt details. The airframe was detailed with cross brace wires and photo-etch turnbuckles. He added a "metal" shoe and clamps to the tail skid.
