Kit: Eduard (1:48)
Eduard standard 48 scale Albatros DII straight OOB. Decals from the Kagero
book decal set "kaiser's Eagles"
Kurt Student's Albatros DII.
This is the Eduard 48 scale Albatros DII kit converted to DI. Scratch built
replacement struts. PE gun jackets, although the aircraft has regularly been
described as being all green I did this with standard camouflage on wings and
tailplane. All hand painted, "invisible" mending thread rigging. Humbrol
enamels, satin varnish mixed with white spirits.
This is my version of Ltn Strobel's Albatros DIII. Using an early edition of
Eduard's 48 scale Albatros
DIII, extra PE is added for detail. A/G decals, hand painted scheme, I thought
it important to represent
the scratched out zeros of the fuselage somehow, I feel i've achieved that. I
realised after the fact
however that the tail decoration was off with the absence of the blue
demarcation line around the
rudder and fin but too late and my painting skills aren't that good. Rigging
Merlin thread again and hand
painted. You will notice I rather like Jasta 5 colour schemes. I hope to
eventually have the entire line up from
july 1917 in 48 scale.
1/48 scale Eduard Albatros DIII OAW kit built OOB. I had this kit lying around
for awhile. I just decided to go with the kit suggested colour scheme. I just
liked the idea of a WW1 vintage aircraft in "proper" camouflage... Even if
it's not accurate I like it. Humbrol enamels, hand painted.

Scheme taken from Jasta 5 datafile special by G K Merrill. Decals donated by

Straight OOB 48 scale Eduard late model Albatros DII. PE gun jackets. I just
liked the scheme so went with it. Hand painted humbrol enamels.
As per my Baumer DV this again is another Jasta 5 subject. An Eduard weekend
edition 48 scale
Albatros DV again with the addtion of PE details. Decals are A/G again
provided as per my Baumer
model with a little detail added in to give definition to the rearing stallion
on the red shield. Rigging
is Merlin invisible thread,
Paint scheme is as per the illustration and description provided in the Jasta
5 Windsock datafile special
by G K Merrill.
"This Albatros bore a regional coat of arms, the rearing stallion of
Braunschwieg: Rot, ein steigendes
silbernes RoB." (i don't have the German double s character, sorry!)
Description: Eduard 48 scale Albatros DVa kit OOB, Eduard Lozenge (again
lovely faded quality). I loved this colour scheme the minute I clapped eyes on
it, I love the blues. Humbrol enamels, hand painted.
This is my build of Paul Baumer's Jasta 5 Albatros DV, It's a build up of the
48 scale Eduard weekend
edition Albatros DV with the addition of some PE details, Radiator shutter,
mirror, Aileron actuators etc.
Decals are A/G as supplied to me by Michael Vice and Mike Muth. Rigging is
Merlin brand black 'invisible thread'. All paint are Humbrol enamels, hand
brushed, basically because I can't afford an airbrush, so if there
are imperfections in the paint finish that is why. After about 4 coats of
Johnson's Klear to seal everything
in the model is finished off with a couple of coats of Humbrol satin varnish
diluted with cheap white spirit,
I just like the nice finish that gives.
Early Eduard 48 scale multimedia kit. OOB with extra strut material for
tailplanes. "Invisible" mending thread rigging. Kit decals used with some
techmod for tail area, fuselage lozenges hand painted. Humbrol enamels.
Finished off with humbrol satin varnish thinned with white spirits.
Kit: Blue Max (1:48)
Description: 48 scale Blue Max kit built straight OOB. Made a right pig's ear
of decal application, silvering all over the place and decals breaking, i was
ready to tear me hair out. Humbrol enamels, handpainted.
Eduard non profi 48 scale Pfalz DIIIa, Not much added except fuel lines and
rigging. Humbrol enamels
hand painted finished off with humbrol satin thinned down with white spirit
gives (in my opinion) a nice
I chose all black using the picture of Carl Degelow's crash whilst flying with
Jasta 7 from the Osprey book "Pfalz scout aces of World war 1"and the profile
included, the same picture is included in Carl Degelow's biography by Peter
Kilduff. It may not be 100% accurate but I like the way it has turned out.
This is the 48 scale Blue Max kit pretty much OOB. PE seat belts, control
surfaces offset. lozenge by Eduard, which i think has a wonderful faded
quality. I love the shape of this aircraft and the clinker built fuselage.
Eduard 48 scale profipack Roland CII. Straight outta the box, decals as
supplied nothing out of the ordinary done to it. handpainted.
Eduard standard 48 scale Roland CII. Straight OOB, with the exception of the
addition of Roland badges under the wings plus a weight table.
Kit: Hitech (1:48)
Description: Ex-works LFG Roland DII constructed from the Hitech kit. Nice
little aircraft, if a little of an odd shape. Pretty much OOB. with control
rods added, kit prop replaced. Little bit of surgery undertaken to get that
exhaust stack to fit in right. Humbrol enamels, hand painted.
