Well here's another photo of it - suffers from "good camera, shame about the photographer though" syndrome  :banghead: It appears to be a two-seater?



Most (if not all) variants of the Taube were 2 seaters. It's an interesting aircraft as the original was designed by Igo Etrich, but he forgot to patent (or whatever) the design and at least half a dozen other manufacturers just copied it and called it their own. One of the more common ones was Rumpler's version.


According to the information from Aviationmuseum.eu (now there's a useful site!  ;D ) it's a Jeannin Stahltaube - a version with steel tubing fuselage structure.
Probably spent more time than is healthy painting a Bear's bottom!
