TOPIC: Baron Richthofen and his Albatros

Baron Richthofen and his Albatros 31 Jan 2019 21:16 #1

Okay in February my Favorite WWI web site is having a special group build in honour of the sites founder. So I am going to take a break and do a WWI a/c. Now here is the question guys and girls. Whose Alby will I build? Lt Alfred Lenz or Von Richthofen?
Lez's a/c is number 2

Number 5, Wood grain and colors are great. I've still got bad feelings about white starts on black background. :pilot
I told you photobucket sucks...

I actually kind of go between number 1 and 5. The first one has a fair amount of wood and then the markings over that. The artwork doesn't really do it justice.

I had one years ago that looked a lot like him. HAD to be in my lap. ALL the time. Didn't matter if I petted him or not though I did a bit. He would always come up beside me and pat me asking permission. (didn't matter if he got it or not) Then up in the lap an lay down. Miss him still.
