Hallo again

Now I finished my Stahltaube from WNW. Actually it was not an easy kit. My first small fault was a front bulkhead, which was misaligned. Here I had to do some restoration work at the front part of the fuselage. Well, after this my next challenge was the filling process. I usually worked with Surfacer. Here, it did not work at all. So I went on with super glue, as my husband told me to try. This worked perfect. So, after all this, the paint job was next. Here I was in the wonderful situation, to have close examined a replica of the Etrich Taube, some years ago. So I could adapt some ideas for coloring the wings. Well, after a long nerving battle, the Taube I finished yesterday.

Incredible work and a beautiful result! :)
 

Were the 'feathers' on the wing tips and tail painted or a decal? What scale is the model - i dont know if i would have the patience for that rigging!! 🤪

Great job on the engine, the rigging and the metal cowling parts! The model looks as fragile as the real thing.

Hallo Kushan_Farsight

 

All sprayed. My imagination according to the replica of the Taube. Scale is 32.

 

Happy modelling

Beautiful Taube! And the tailplane rigging looks 'interesting'.

 

Skilful modelling!

 

Kind regards,

Very nice! I have one of these on the go. Do you have any references for the fuel line routings? All I can find is the one line out of the gravity tank dissapearing into the fuselage, the kit fuel filter in the cockpit, and the carbs on the engine, but no indication of fuel line routings.

Hello, Robin-42

No farther references do I have, just the instruction from WNW.

 

Happy modelling

Very nice one, and what a tempting subject that is.

 

I'm thinking about going for this one as well, as I do have a crush on those early "Flugapparate", and the strange subject of Austrian aviation in special. Also, the Taube has a very interesting story. That I live quite close to the TMW and just can jump over for checking some details helps as well, of course. 😉

 

But then again; the rigging! The tiny bitsies! I'm getting to old for this!

 

But let's see., maybe once Mr. Jackson decides to offer an Etrich Taube, then there is no more stopping me! 😄

 

Grüße aus Penzing, G.

Beautiful work!

The rigging is especially nice - and seemingly as much as some biplanes!

Well done!

:clap:

splendid work... And still have the same idea about this one or the Etrich Taube.. You needed steel cohonnes to actually fly these... 

 

BTW: how long did it take to learn a spider doing this rigging?

Well worth the effort. You've made a brilliant job of it. The cowling looks excellent.

Very nice - what an interesting aircraft! Love the way you have maintained the delicate look of the original.

 

Cheers
