This is the Blue Max AIRCO DH2 in progress. It can actually be considered a
scratch built kit, as the only parts I am using from the BM kit are the wings
and these have been extensively reworked. The wings were too thick and
slightly oversize compared to the Data File drawings.
The wing represents a field 'replacement' of a lower wing with an upper, but
keeping the original aileron - just to add some character. The upper and lower
wings of the DH2 were interchangeable and there are several photos of such
replacements. The underside of the wings have been airlbrushed and decaled to
simulate the shadow effect of the ribs and roundels, so prominent on these
Update: I decided I had better get off my ass and post the photos of my
COMPLETED Airco DH2 1:48. You already have a few of the construction shots,
that I sent a couple of years ago. Some of these images have appeared in
Windsock, BUT I do have Ray's kind permission for you to use them in the
Gallery. Please mention this, if you can. This model was almost a
scratch-build - I used the wing blanks from the Blue Max kit. Let me know if
you have any questions.
