HpH are working on one Cees if I recall correctly...

 

Would rather have a Vimy personally  :)

 

Taube is a nice choice!

Wow. Just wow.

 

The moulding on the wing trailing edge is something else.

 

It has metal spoked wheels - I wonder if that's in the kit, or if it's a mythical "Special Edition"?

 

Anyhow, I'll be buying. An important very early WWI aeroplane, and beautifully done by the look of it.

 

Can't wait.

You're right!

 

They look very convincing from that angle. I tried PE wheel spokes once - it looked bloody awful.

To add some excitement - my pics of the Taube displayed at Omaka. Superb museum if you ever get the chance to go.

Wonderful pics, thank you, Mike!

 

Should the lads from Wingnut Wings visit the Omaka Museum regularly, I can hope for a Halberstadt D.IV, a DH.4, a Breguet XIV and even a Morane-Saulnier BB, too, can't I?!
