1/32 Wingnut Wings Jeannin Stahltaube
I started this kit over a month ago and it’s been a lot of fun, although I must say that I’m getting a little bored with it and really want to start on the 1/32 Tamiya Mosquito that keeps calling to me. But, I have to resist and finish this, first. It’s a great kit with very good fit and finish. The airplane was rather primitive and simple so there’s not a lot of detail per se. I moodified the engine a bit by adding valve springs from copper wire wrapped around a 0.015″ surgical pin, wiring, and spark plug cable tubes from brass Albion tubing. I used left over Uschi va der Rosten wood decals from my Horten over Mr Color linen paint, and used Mission Models paints for the engine cylinders, and interior cockpit areas. German Interior White was used for the linen covered fuselage interior. Aircraft Gray was used for the steel tubing. I’ve had a couple of minor issues with the kit. A couple of very delicate pieces broke as they were removed from the sprue so I’ll have to reproduced them with Evergreen plastic.
