Scratch Build AGO C.IB

Kit: Scratch (1:72)

This is my scratch built Ago C.IV in 1/72 scale. The cockpit and engine are from the original model built in 1982, these parts were incorporated into the rebuilt model in 1990 or thereabouts. The colour scheme is conjectural.

Dornier D.I

Kit: Meikraft (1:72)

My first Meikraft model, bought years ago at Rosemont Hobbies. Built OOB. An easy build, and a nice addition to my collection. The fuselage streaks patterned after the photos in the Harleyford Fighters of the 1914-1918 War.

Fokker D.VII, early

Kit: Renwal (1:72)

This is the Renwal "Aero-Skin" model. I bought it already built at an estate sale. I replaced all struts, and touched up the colours with acrylic paints.

Fokker E-III Diorama

Kit: Scratch (1:72)

This is my first diorama, based on a photo in the Fokker E.III Datafile. Fokker took 70 of these photos of planes in for repairs. Except for the wings and horizontal stabilizer, the model is scratch built. Dirt is hand crumbled potting soil, and given various washes. The fuselage is slightly larger than 1/72, which adds a little forced perspective. Now I'm looking for a figure to convert into a cameraman.

Hansa Brandenburg D.1

Kit: Scratch (1:72)

A scratch-built model, using wings from Life-Like's AVRO Triplane.
