I started with painting the fuselage CDL bits. I`ve sprayed them with XF-57 mixed with brown and white, in order to make them less uniform.
I`ve also tried something new - I wanted to give the texture to the painted CDL, so using the crayons I`ve simulated the fabric weave.

The woodgrain has been painted using the watercolour crayons, both clear orange and yellow as well as the oils. I`ve also sprayed and weathered the engine firewall. (Ammo`s effects).

I carried on with the cockpit. I`ve finished the instrument panel along with the firewall. I`ve replaced the starting magneto with the resin one by Taurus Models. The seats have been painted as well. Finally, before I could proceed with the assembly, I`ve prepared the rudder pedals, the main petrol tank and the control column.

The cockpit interior section of the Taube is almost completed. I still need to add the interior rigging on the both fuselage halves.
