Two builds from 5 years ago: The Mercedes-Daimler L.21 was the winner of the Light Plane Class of the 1925 Rundflug. https://www.flightglobal.com/FlightPDFArchive/1925/1925%20-%200257.PDF The L.21 was a parasol plane for one person equipped with two two-cylinder Mercedes engines of 19hp each located on small nacelles on the wing leading edge. The design, if appealing, is nevertheless a tad odd, with a mix of refinement and some bluntness to it. I have been gathering material on it for a few years, but the call that brought the model to light came from friend and fellow modeler Sönke Schulz, who is involved in building one, but at the heretic scale of 1/48th. For such little model, it has a great number of details, and it is a veritable strut forest. Besides the four main wing struts, there are small eight of them to hold the landing gear, four very little ones to steady the engine gondolas, plus eight more for the cabane (that's for you illiterate the structure that unites the wing to the fuselage). 24 in total, for such visit card-size model. Small does not automatically translate into easy, as you will be able to see in this build. Decals are from Arctic Decals These TWO models are D622 and D623 ,the two planes that participated in the 1925 Rundflug. D622 was not completely finished at the start of the competition, therefore lacks paint in certain areas and some details that are however visible in D623 , which was fully painted and had details like the Mercedes-Daimler star on the nose, among other things.
