  1. Kovozávody Prostějov (KP) is to release 1/72nd Albatros C.III kits Source: https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=95825&start=7740#p2245704 V.P.
  2. Completed today, Last entry for my Kosciuszko Squadron aircraft, unless someone knows of a 1/48 Spad 51. This is the Eduard Albatros D.III OEFFAG 253. Painted in Gunze colors and final coated with Mr Hobby Semi-Gloss. The decals are from a Polish supplier ,ModelMaker. These decals were fantastic. No bleed-through on the white, settled into panels and were not fragile in any way. I can't say enough about these decals. I did however ignore the recommendation for using a SWORL scheme on this aircraft. My sources say No SWORL. I used Cerami
  3. Well, I finally started to cut and fill plastic on the the Valom 1/72 D.H. 91 Albatros kit yesterday. My intention is to build it as one of the two mailplanes used by the RAF, in this case B-JW (earlier as one of the prototypes, E.3). At first, I thought this airframe would still have the split flaps of the two mailplanes (E.3 and G-AEVV) even after its partial reconstruction following a broken back accident that involved reconfiguration of the rear wing fillets to the airliner form. Now, I'm not so sure after peering at the various in-flight photos of B-JW. There is a hint of a change in tone
  4. Hi all This is my last finished model, an Albatros from Eduard in 1/48. Beautiful model, with a very good level of detail. But really hard to build, a test for our patience. It's my first 1/48 wwI model, and the first time I do wood textures... Cheers R.
  5. 1:32 WNW Albatros D.Va Pheon 'Jasta 17' Decals Jagdstaffel 17 was formed in October 1916, and went on to produce many well known aces before the Great War ended in November 1918. Pheon decals produced a fabulous sheet in 2015 depicting many of their aircarft Reviewed here. I resolved at the time to build aone of them, and promptly ordered an Albatros from Wingnut Wings. Work got underway, but the project suffered delays due to work commitmnets, and work was only resumed on it a couple on months ago. I was torn between Hubertus Rudno-Rudzinski's 'Gisi' and Rudolph von Esebecks
  6. Hi All, Thought I'd offer a few WIPs of my Wingnut Wings 1/32 Albatros DV that I wanted to present using their 'Wooden Wonders' decal sheet markings. Here the fuselage is together and Pheon Models beautiful lozenge decals have gone on with no problems with the help of a little Micro Set and my wife's hair dryer! The wings are now taped in readiness for some Tamiya Smoke to highlight the rib shadings. Now the fuselage will be prepared for my first plunge into Uschi Van Der Rosten's Woodgrain Decals, which have attracted me for a while.
  7. Hi All Having just returned to modelling I wanted to look to do one of my favourite WW1 aircraft the Albatros. I have tried to look for a post for this before but couldn't find one, so my question is, do I go Roden or Wingnut Wings for a 1/32 Albatros?

  11. Viribus Unitis, OEFFAG Albatros D.III 1:48 Eduard (11124) The Albatros D.1 was the first of the series of single seat fighters that were developed up to the D.Va, featuring a semi monocoque wooden fuselage and equal span, equal chord upper & lower wings. By lowering the top wing and moving it slightly forward to improve visibility, the aircraft was re-designated the D.II. Impressed by the performance of the French Nieuport fighters with their sesquiplane layout (lower wing smaller than upper wing), new wings were developed by Albatros, with the aircraft now becomi

From time to time Eduard offer some of their kits as ‘Overtrees’ editions. These contain just the plastic parts for the particular model with no instructions or decals, and come in a plain white box. The idea is that with the multiple options for markings in most Eduard kits, you can use these overtrees to build another of the options provided in the original kit. Also, you can

  17. Oh well, I feel committed now even though a bit of initial research shows I may have picked a 'hard' kit albeit for a real 'looker' of a subject, the Albatros DVa. From Wiki, the Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I and was the final development of the Albatros D.I family, and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. Despite its well-known shortcomings and general obsolescence, approximately 900 D.V and 1,612 D.Va aircraft were built before production halted in early 1918. The D.Va continued i
  18. This is a kit I built back in 2006. It's an Albatros D.V flown by Manfred von Richtofen with Jasta 11. He was shot down in this aircraft on July 6th, 1917 by an RFC 20 Sqn FE2. He crash-landed behind German lines near Werwicq in Belgium with a severe head wound. It's the old Airfix 1:72 kit (Aces edition) with Airwaves etched parts added. It was completely painted by brush with only the varnish being airbrushed. The markings were overpainted on the wings and the tail so I had to paint over the decals deliberately. The rigging is partial with some of the main wires being done and like that
  19. A sudden bout of insomnia has triggered me to start this build and thread. The Great War is unknown to me, when it comes to flying contraptions, but the sheer lunacy of taking off in these rackety things without parachutes has long horrored me. I will do my part in commemorating the madness, with Eduard’s Albatros D.V. Box shot below, it contains parts for two kits and a number of colourful options (it is difficult to say exactly how many, because the side of the box illustrates one plane more than the fine instruction booklet does, and I believe the decals are sufficient f
  20. Thanks for allowing Dylan and I to join this GB. We shall each be building one of the kits below, which being 1/48 scale should give me a fighting chance of seeing what I'm doing ! Ive never built a Glencoe kit before so if anyone has any advice regarding this kit / aircraft it would be most appreciated. Cheers Pat & Dylan (age 12)
  21. Evolution L-39 Albatros C/ZO (11121) 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK The L-39 is a fast jet trainer that was designed and manufactured in Czechoslovakia (as was) as a direct replacement for the earlier L-29 Delfin. It has been a success in its roles, and has received a number of upgrades that have resulted in new designations, and since the dismantling of the Soviet Union, some have found their way into private hands throughout the west, and they are often seen at airshows. It first flew in 1971, and was hoped to become the standard trainer across the Union, and the in 19
  22. L-39 Albatros Update set, Seatbelts & Masks 1:48 Eduard for Eduard/MPM Kit The MPM kit has recently been re-released by Eduard and therefore some sets are now available for the kit. Update Set (48962) This set has one brass fret. You get cockpit details, seat head box details, exhaust details, undercarriage details, new vortex generators, entry steps. and pitot tubes. Seatbelts (FE918) This set contains seatbelts, seat pads and ejection seat handles in the now familiar steel material.
  23. Finished Valom Albatros. This is my first build of a Valom kit, I don't think this is as good as the others available after studying parts, the kit engine was massively oversized like a church organ. Lots of adjustments had to be made. I will add this to a base but I want to learn static grass to make a good base.
