Not sure if this will be popular, but i'd love to see a range of new 1/48 Mercedes D.III engines (D.III, D.IIIa, D.IIIau, etc). These were very common engines and there are no after-market items available or in production. I can only imagine that they would be a good seller for us 1/48 types. I have your Mercedes D.I engine (now also out of production) and I can only drool at what might be possible if you turned your attention here.

Just my humble request :)

Cheers,

It's too little :) To be honesty, the market for 48 and 72 is just too small...

Well, I for one would be up for at least two dozen 1/48th Mercedes D.III/D.IIIa cylinder banks with decent looking manifolds and exhausts to replace the Eduard and Fly parts. In my opinion, that would be a major improvement since these elements are prominent features. I'm all set for 1/32nd as I've got a full shoebox of your large scale stuff in my aftermarket stash. In recent years, I've taken long pauses between builds, but I never stop buying.  ;)

Hello Taurusmodels,
   I would really like to see you produce 1/32 rocker arms & springs for the Curtis OX-5 engines.
   Thank you in advance!

All of the 1:32 scale Oberursel engines that have been out of stock.  ::)
(edit) ...even though the size of my stash and rate of my building indicates that I will not meet my goal of completing them all in time for the Great War Bicentennial.:o

I'd second that for some basic updates to known 1/48 problem parts like the the mercedes engines Albatros legs  wicker seats. Some of this stuff  is available from eduard but Lukasz is the bees knees as far as i'm concerned, I've still got some of his 1/48 radials in the stash.

Hello,
    We really need top end detail for the Curtis OX-5 in 1/32 scale, to include the rocker arms, springs and spark plugs. The beautiful engine with the Lukgraph 1/32 Jenny JN4D is seriously lacking
   in the cylinder top detail.
   Thank you very much.

The thread is ten years old and Taurus has been silent here since October 2022. Not sure if they're listening.

I have the distinct impression that he is only interested in what the Facebook WNW group wants or says, thinking WNW kit builders are his only market, which is a real shame.
