Hi Jeroen,

here are some pictures which you may be a help.

I found it somewhere on the web, years ago.

Hi Bertl,

 

Thnx for those! I should have looked at these pics better before venturing in the Taurus engine.

Pure headache material.

 

1. I glued the cilinders on. Only to discover the engine would not fit the cowling of the WnW kit.

2. I debonded all the cilinders and shortened them 1,5 mm each.

3. Then i saw Aviattic is releasing a beautiful resin scale thickness cowling that will fit the Taurus engine. Duh!

4. After this i somehow managed to glue all the cilinder heads / caps in the wrong way round. This was a pain.

5. And by sawing off the rocker arms from the block I already managed to screw up 2 parts.

 

This piece of kit really makes me doubt my abilities. You can see an empty strip of aspirine in the background.

 

Here's where I'm at...

Found this pic of Hans Müller in his plane. Great shot of faded paint on cowling.

Note the wheel chocks hanging by chains from the fuselage....

Later in the war the 161/16 (and others, like the 170/16 as painted by Ronnie Bar in Fokker Eindecker Compendium 2) received field applied camo. Brown and mid green.

I'll stick to the profile as supplied by WnW...

I wish WNW had supplied the markings/scheme for the camo machines too. Never mind.

 

Lovely work on the Taurus engine and the extreme surgery to make it fit ;)

Thnx Jim,

 

Here's some gloss black paint on as a base for the Alclad.

I'll add the spark plugs later and wires.

Love the look of those wood panels, and that big honking U.III looks ready to go.

Great looking work Jeroen. You get your wood decal looking better than mine. 

 

Any progress?

Hi Jeroen,

 I will confirm my address by PM  ;)

Please confirm yours.

 

Do you want just the crosses? I can also provide the square masks for the white backgrounds.

Cheers,

Bob

 

Bertl,

Send me your address. I will do the rest  ;) 

Cheers,

Bob

Nice save with the engine! Thanks for the heads up about Aviattic's thin cowling. I have not started my build yet, I want to see a lot more of what you're doing.

I cleaned up all the parts ( as said more than the total of parts that comprise the engine alone!) and started painting the cowling / aluminum parts. Swirls!!

All this will be covered up and partly brought back with the hairspray technique.

Great work. I beat myself up over the swirls, yet you seem to do it effortlessly.
