    Assembly jigs for biplanes etc., is that something that can be bought, or do you have to create the jig yourself?

    I need new glasses - I read this as 'Jugs', and I wasn't thinking of the P-47 !
    I did once see a rather expensive, plastic, or maybe wooden, adjustable jig-like thing advertised, but it's normally a case of building your own to suit the model and scale in question.
    In the past, I've just used stiff card, sometimes formed into elongated boxes, which did the job.

    I think usually plans are lofted and full size. So overlaying blocks and sticks for jigging are pretty easily made. A rib jig for a Christen Eagle is not difficult to make. I made a couple, one simple, one not so simple for the work platform for my Merlin's Magic build. Sooooo many jigs, so little space.

    with so many variations, should be easy enough....to make them to suit the particular build you do.
