A bit of research concerning Luftwaffe wooden propeller blades...should anyone in The Universe be interested....  Of note is the "splashed" restored BF109 (looks like an F or early G...no fuselage gun bulges or nose cannon...but has a G supercharger intake)...sporting well-splintered prop blades of its own.  My guess is that some thinking responsible person has determined that replacing wooden blades beats dealing with an invaluable crankshaft inside an irreplaceable DB engine.

Thanks, Tom...great tips.

I've always liked those big chunky propeller blades the Luftwaffe used...particularly on Jumo engines...Ju-88, Ju-87, ...Dora, etc.  When material shortages became critical...they even managed to machine them from wood...with no seeming performance loss!  To my eye they have a massive, powerful appearance.  I wanted this model's prop to look that way as well.  Considered a two-bladed plastic unit...but nope...not right for this model.   Prop dia. is 6 1/2".

Note the "snapped off" wooden blades on the "bent" Dora.

Looking good...I've used the rattle can method many times.  I also found that letting the rattle can set in some very hot water for a few minutes before spraying thins the paint down and give a nicer spray without splattering.

If you decide on applying the white stripes use that rattle can again spraying some tissue white and then cut some thin white strips of this painted tissue to make the stripes on the bottom of your "butcher bird" using glue stick on the back of the strips!  Just a thought. Wink Cheesy

Thanks, Don!  This is called a rattle-can paint-job...named after the typical paint application method of the late-war period.  Friend once told me (his grandfather was a Wehrmacht tanker) that a good deal of the late war period's paint schemes were actually whatever paint could be found...much less what some rear-echelon individual was dreaming up.  Did rattle-can "technology" exist during WW2?  Well...then a brush-scheme.  Smiley

Started applying my generic aluminum skin...obviously going to need to use some sort of camo paint scheme on this one.  Still seriously considering modeling JV44's "Papagei Staffel."  I'm not a big fan of the rot und weiss underside however...so may just do it (underside) in red.  Intent was to help local AA determine friend from foe.  Here are a selection of other Sachesenberg-Schwarm Dora's.

I'm starting to look at cutting corners...a sure sign I need a rest. Huh

Found a color scheme with an interesting background...

Heinz Sachsenberg transferred to JG 7 to fly Me 262 jet fighters. Here, he briefly led 9./JG 7 before joining JV 44 in April 1945. Sachsenberg was tasked with setting up a Platzschutzstaffel, flying Fw 190 D-9 fighters, to protect the Me 262s during their most vulnerable phases - take-off and landing. The unit was variously known as the Sachsenberg-Schwarm or the Papagei Staffel (parrot squadron). Sachsenberg died of complications from the wounds he received during the war on 17 June 1951.
    “Wimmersal” Sachsenberg flew 520 missions in recording 104 aerial victories.

The motto on his aircraft says "Sell my clothes, I'm going to heaven."

Victories : 104
Awards : Ehrenpokal (2 October 1943)
                Deutsches Kreuz in Gold (17 October 1943)
                Ritterkreuz (9 June 1944)
Units : JG 52, JG 7, JV 44
