Hallo again

Now here I do a Roland CII early from WNW in 1/32 scale. This a/c is at the time of design at 1915 a highly sophisticated a/c. Why: The aerodynamic with the goal to minimize drag was the guideline. At Göttingen, the University in the field of aerodynamic, with his head Ludwig Prandtl (4 February 1875 – 15 August 1953) was in charge of design. The concept was excellent, since the margin of 30km/h was reached. 

The same basic design was used for the Spirit of St. Louis.

Spirit of St. Louis

The overall concept for flight characteristic was poor. No downward visibility. The rudder response was poor, because of low incident flow at the rudder area.

 

The build of this a/c is straight forward.

·        One point to mention: The shading or visual effect of ribs due to the fact that the fabric was translucent. You see the poor result at the rear stabilizer, as I did it.

·        Now I change the method: The surface is colored as it should be with any base color. Afterward I will take the base color and rib color in 1:10 or 1:5 and spray the exact pattern of ribs.

It should work out much better and it is 100% comprehensible for other models.

So, that is it. After it is finished, the late version will follow!

 

Happy modelling

Lovely! I built the Airfix one ( with many modifications) in this scheme. I love it!
