  1. My interest with Austrian Aviation (we're talking mostly WWI, to be clear - mounting parts of HE162 in some caves in the south of Vienna is not what I consider "Aviation") started, when I found that an old factory building, I regularily went by as a kid, nearby my home was initially the home of Phoenix Flugzeugwerke - then unknown to me. The original building was torn down I think in 2010 for some modern condominiums, before that I think a trucking company had their fleet there. So I started a bit of investigation on this. Another company I was rather familiar with was Bombardier, who build Tramways, and whose plant in Vienna I visited somtimes for business reasons. Also not far from my childhood home, I was familar with since my very youth from passing by. I've learned that this was initially the Lohner Werke, building some small scooters in postwar Vienna, but before 1919 they build Aeroplanes as well. So, when I found out I litterally grew up what once was Austrias home of aviation, I started to read what I could find, and information is quite rare. But in the last say ten years some pieces fell together and here's a bit. And true, of course, many stories are onyl available in german. While lurking around here a bit, I now and then found some builds of K.&K. stuff, most recently @Marklo's mad and great WIP on scratchbuilding the Etrich Taube in 1/48, I thought I could add some glimpses I've read. But not to hijack his thread (Go There! Read it! Like it! It's great!) I thought I start something more general here.
  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 Ceramic rigging for cables and Uschi elastic thread for strut rigging. Albion tubes for gun barrels. Thanks for Looking and Comments always welcome Cheers Bill
  3. Eduard's 1/48 scale profiPACK Albatros D.III Oeffag 153. The crosses and owl emblems are from Pheon's Oeffag set Volume one. This particular aircraft was flown by Hungarian born Franz Gräser. He was ranked sixth among the aces of the Austro-Hungarian air force, with a total of 18 confirmed. An interesting fact is he never obtained an official pilot's certificate, nor underwent any official flying training. regards, Jack
