der Wind wird stärker

This is my plan for the one week build.



I always thought the little plane from the wind rises looked like a taube. So I’m going to try to make it look more like a taube.

Trial fit. This is basically a snap together model. I’m trying to scalearama this model to 1:72 with the help of some spare parts from a roden kit. First step will be to replace the 2 pot engine with a nice 6 cylinder.



That will require a bit of chopping of the upper fuselage to get the right sized hole.

Great idea and a very pretty aeroplane!  :thumbsup:

You could maybe make it a two-seater, with a new pilot's cockpit just behind the engine, and the original cockpit now a gunner's position.

Work has kicked my arsenal this week so I have made no progress since last weekend. Until this morning when I’ve managed to grab a bit of time.



With lots of hacking I’ve managed to get the engine to sit neatly. Now onwards with the rest of the build!

Well it looks like I won’t get this finished before the deadline. Here is where I am currently. If I was building OOB I think this could be done really rapidly. It basically falls together and I think it would be possible to do it entirely without glue if you fancied it.

However. I want to scratch a more realistic landing gear than the stalk legs and am planning to give it a king post and some of the rigging that could be found in abundance on a taube.



Now off out to father in laws birthday party. Do you think they’d allow a scalpel and solvents in a pub?

The solvents = they'll probably think you're just a serious alcoholic.

The scalpels = they'll probably think you're just a seriously alcoholic surgeon.
