Eagle Rig Color Change
REMOVE CABLE TIE PRIOR TO RIGGING
The wing hinges are attached to a central bar of aluminum. A 1/8" swaged wire captures the framework and gets the bird ready for hanging.
Wing Rig Points
Body Rig Points
Beer Pack Rigging Line
Beer Rigging Line puts a loop to grab in the middle back of the bird. This line goes through the bird down towards the feet. Near the claws is another loop. This loop is what the lightweight beer package is tied to.
Here we see the eagle prop after a color change and some loving tender care! The wing pick points are set, and you may be able to see the colored 1/16" cable that is run between those pick points. Now the body pick points are being set, and that will finish this project.
