I am making a 1:1 scale 109 rudder and want to paint it up in as spectacular a scheme as I can find.

Does anyone have a good colour pic of a well decorated 109 rudder?

Hermann Graf's white one is nice and I may go for that one but am open to ideas.

that is a really neat idea! I will take a look around for some exciting ones. Just one question. Where is it going to go? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

a quick glance through a book brings up a lot of colourful insignia, but the rudder itself is nearly always dull. there are a few with bright colours;

Major Oesau III/JG.3 (E, 1941)

Oberstleutnant Molders III/JG.53 (F, 1940)

Hauptmann Assi Hahn III/JG.2 (F, 1941)

i cant scan the pictures into the PC, but the scanner is all screwed up for the moment. I will upload ASAP, but most likley the weekend.

Thanks Andrew,

Let me clarify, the actual base colour of the rudder is not important, I just want an interesting marking design that will stand out.

The rudder is full size but split down the centre, so that it will go up on a wall nice and flat in my garage and eventually Hobby room when I am allowed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif to have one.

Thx Andrew, they are awesome! I have chosen one of them as the candidate for my first rudder (the 109f of Heinz Bar) which I hope to have finished over the weekend!

Wow that looks fantastic m8. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Did you make the rudder with stick/skin construction?

An excellent wall trophy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Edit: The link is somewhat broken, I fixed it and put it here (http://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=803A12157720DEA0) for you.
(Incidentally, your boy has somehow made an exact rendition of the look my wife gives me when I want to put something in the house that I have made. It's quite uncanny. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif )

Thx for fixing that for me.

Yes, stick and fabric was the method.

I am going to weather the rudder to age it as it looks far too new and bright, then up on the wall it goes! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That is an insanely cool wall piece! Do you have any construction drawings or pictures of the production?

Sadly no, my camera wasn't working at the time. I plan to make more, maybe a dozen or so http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and I will take some construction pics then.
