Hansa-Brandenburg W.29


Another odd looking old bird .

This plane was used by the German Navy in the first world war ( as a fighter ) , and for a few years after ( as an observation plane ).

Looking really good . Do you intended to keep the original (scale) tail ? It seems too small IMHO

Regards, Joao

lake flyer,
Very nice floats Sir, I like the taper on the rear, looks like they will be able to rotate well for lift off.
cheers Al.

Looks great, the Camo Pattern seems to be a huge amount of work! But it really gives it a special something

Coming along well. Looks like you finally got yourself an airplane now.
I think the large undercamber wing will work out well.
