Red and Blue Albatross?

Recommended Posts

I built my son a WWI biplane about 20 plus years ago and would like to do it for myself

again. I am thinking it may have been an Eduard kit, possibly an Albatross with a red forward

fuselage and dark blue rear fuselage. The most memorable part was the fuselage marking of

a moon smoking a pipe. I don't remember the kit maker or scale but am thinking it may have

been Eduard in 1/48 scale, does this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks---John

I think the kit was the  Eduard 1/48 Weekend Edition 8407 Albatros DV. I have this in my stash and colours are red nose and blue everywhere else, depicting a machine from Jasta 15. It does not have the half moon face however, but this is probably because it is a Weekend Edition with only one decal choice. It may be that the Eduard Profipack version (PE & Resin parts) has more decal options. If not, Viking's suggestion of going to Pheon Decals would be in order if you particularly want the half moon face. Jasta 18 and 15 swapped their numbers early 1918.
