some photos of my Lippisch DM-1 second stage (Bird Models) on Siebel 204A (Kopro) in 1:72.
Kopro offers a very nice decal sheet for the DM-1 (3rd stage) mounted on top
their old kit of the Siebel 204A in a very good quality.
You can find the kit of the delta wing glider under the name "DM-1 Entwurf
The manual of Kopro´s decal sheet shows the DM-1 painted in camouflage, but
think for an experimental glider tested by the German Luftwaffe a simple
paint scheme would be more realistic. Wingtips, canopy frame and pitot tube
painted red to make the model more attractive. After attaching the decals I
sprayed clear, silk varnish over it.
I built the kit out of the box and I was surprised how fine the structures
the surfaces were made. I needed some putty, because the fitting accuracy of
old kit is not the best.
To connect both models I built holders made out of carbon fiber rods and
fitted them on the back of the twin engine aircraft.
After the Siebel was painted, provided with the decals and sealed with clear
varnish, both models were combined.
