The bird-like Taube was one of the earliest WWI combatants and was primarily used as an observation plat-form. The detailed plan set consists of four large sheets which clearly illustrate all structure as well as providing building hints.


The giant scale Taube plan set is 1/6.9 scale and consists of four large sheets that clearly illustrate all structure. The Taube plan shows the installation of fixed wire gear, servos and OS .60 FS engine and features one piece wing.  The basic structures use conventional “modeling” tools and materials such as balsa and plywood, and the techniques are straightforward; easily accomplished by anyone with previous model building experience. There are many online building threads at www.rcuniverse.com forums and www.rcscalebuilder.com  forums for Nick’s plans. Tech support is also available via email at www.ziroliplans.com or by phone 9:00 to 5:00 Mon - Fri EST 631-467-4765. The plan includes full-size templates for all the required parts allowing you to cut a complete “kit” before you start construction. If you would like to purchase a wood kit see KIT CUTTER'S on selection bar at the top of each page. The plans have instructions and building notes on the plans. If you choose an engine not shown on the plans you should have it on hand when you start construction to make any changes needed for mounting. Nick Ziroli Plans recommends covering the airframe with an iron on cloth covering such as Solartex. Nick Ziroli Plans has building and scale accessories available for the Taube.
