Thanks a lot for your extremely kind words!!!
Time for another update.
The fuselage halves are closed. I`ve also painted the airframe. The wings and the tailplane were a challenge. I wanted to make them to appear transluscent as in the reference pictures. It took a lot of kabuki tape and some patience. But I think it was worth the effort. Many thanks to Krzysztof Tengli for the masks for the markings - they were absolutely great!
Time for weathering and undercarriage.




















Best regards
Filip

You know, I've seen a lot of people playing with this technique and to me it usually looks false

This looks absolutely spot on - I may have to change my opinion on this!

Really nice work

   I can only echo Richard's assessment of your efforts to produce a translucent effect Filip, you've nailed it! Nicely done all round, this is already a spectacular model.
Cheers,
Lance

A difficult look to achieve, especially with the Taube's wing being so thin at the outer trailing edge.
Masterfully done,

Mike

Yes, very good paint work.  It gives the impression of depth in the wing.

The woodgrain has been painted using the watercolour crayons, both clear orange and yellow as well as the oils. I`ve also sprayed and weathered the engine firewall. (Ammo`s effects).

How do you use water colors to make the wood grain. It looks very convincing and I'm sure it dries much faster than oils even with the additive.

Many thanks for your kind words!

Since the last update I`ve attached the engine bay rigging using the Gaspatch 1/48 scale turnbuckles and EZ line. When it comes to the landing gear I`ve used the fishing line instead of the EZ line - it gives so much to the structural rigidity of the undercarriage. Finally, I could use the absolutely magnificent Steven Robson`s spoked wheels. They are like little jewels, I can only hope my model is worth them. And finally, the radiators have been installed.

Filip
