Help!
Reiher III

I am building the Tom Bode designed Reiher III 1/3 scale and need to determine dimensions of registration lettering ie height/width and thickness, also correct location on wings about as much as I can glean from pictures the underside of port wing the D of D-6045 ends at just aft of spoiler. I can find no pictures of top of wing. I can not open the Retrosport web site also any ideas there as perhaps there are pictures there.
My model will be replica of the replica Reiher III with Dutch markings

Maybe

David:
Out of country for a few more days.

I have a pretty good collection of the Reihers: v1, v2 and v3.

We get back to you next week.

I have the same, so I've started research.
Happy New Year
Jim

Reiher III

Hi Chris, best wishes to you and yours for the New Year
I have most of these pictures what I can not be sure of is the correct size 1/3 scale and if they are not correct they will look awful.
I sent Tom Bode an e-mail but never had a reply.
My cockpit is almost complete with scale instruments and leavers instrument panel custom F/G shroud working on a molded seat. Working canopy latch by remote I'll post a picture later.

Reiher III

Attached are a few pictures of my Reiher III cockpit still unfinished but close.
Have to glaze canopy, finish forward portion of canopy, make and install rudder cables, pedals, levers for wheel dolly. Finish mold for seat and vacuum form seat. Lastly install pilot restraining belts.
Oh! I do have to finish building the model!
