Polish Br.14

Ukranian Fokker D.VII

This is a Ukranian Fokker D.VII. The Ukrane received Central Powers support in it's bid for independence in the wake of the colapse of the Russian Enpire.

Polish Fokker E.V

White Russian Hansa-Brandenburg C.I

This belongs to the "1st Southern Detachment of the ALL-Greater Forces of the Don." I don't remember the kit, some decent little vac. Rareplanes or formaplanes or some such.

White Russian Nieuport 17

A White Russian Nieuport 17 Markings are of the Don Cossacks. Some soures show the triangle darker. Revell kit with Esci top wing Blue Rider decals.

Nieuport 27

This Nie.27 belonged to a special aviation detachment of the Moscow Military Flying School headed by Yu. A. Bratolyubov who ended up being shot after a forced landing behind White lines.

The kit is the barely mediocre HR 24-27 kit. The resin had loads of tiny holes in the surface that took several coats of paint to fill. Outlines were a tad off and all major parts appeared to be a little small when compared to the drawing in the FMP French book.

The Latvians had a few Strutters. This is a kitbash of several broken Strutter kits. The decals are Blue Rider

Soviet Sopwith Snipe

Soviets used some Snipes. This is the Toko kit with Blue Rider decals.

Soviet SPAD A2

This is the Rosemont kit. Markings out of spares box after a photo of the machine in Soviet service 1918 or 19. Both A.2s and A.4s made their way to Russia. The Reds pressed into service anything that would fly early on..
