I am interested in doing the aircraft Julius Arigi used to score his last two victories. It is shown in a picture in the November 1981 Scale Models, and was designated 338.02. The article incudes a story of how Arigi ended up with two of the most modern A-H aircraft in a relatively quiet sector. (The Emperor at one point asked him to accept a commission and serve on his staff, Arigi respectfully declined as needing to stay at the front, so the Emperor asked him what else he might offer to the flier -- who asked for better aircraft.) The aircraft is in hexagon camouflage, with the serial prominent, and a simple diagonal stripe that shows as thinly dark-edged white. The article says this stripe was red, white, and green, but does not indicate red fore, green aft or what. There is no evidence of a wing mount. Does anyone have more information on this aircraft, and while I await datafiles, is it one that can easily be modified from the Linke-Crawford version in the Eduard kit?

It is said to be Bela Macourek's aircraft, not Arigi's. Who knows for sure. The stripe is red/white/green from front to back. The 338 series has a completely different nose than the one in the Flashback kit - it is rounded with 2 side mounted radiators, and 2 Schwerlose MG's run along both sides of the engine like in the later Albatross D.III (oef). it would require a lot of scratchbuilding, but anything is possible.If you want, maybe I can scan it & e-mail it to you offline. Can anyone out there build us a resin nose for this aircraft? How about Rosemont/Atlee/Tom's/Copperstate/Paschendale ? Is there even a market for this nose? Anyone who wants one, e-mail the list, most of these manufacturers are on the list. Also, how about a cannon armed SPAD 12 resin nose & interior for the DML kit?

Message-ID: Hi Stef; Boy, you must have missed Jastagate. Check the archives for some stimulating reading from about a year ago or so. In the case you just mentioned, I think the problem is that posting it on the web is very close to publishing it. I am certain that I can photocopy a few pages of a book and send them to you to help you with something you are working on, but to post it somewhere where the entire public can obtain it free of charge seems, even to me, to be a different sort of case. The discussion from the Jastagate affair came to the conclusion that using the list to offer to send scans to those that request them is also not ok. This may be right, or it may not be - more important than any debate over that is that anything we do which can endanger Al's position with the University of New Hampshire (who provide the server for this list) is not something any of us want to play around with. Its a good and reasonable question, Stef ... but remembering all the angry exchanges from the last time around, I hope we can avoid that path again....

The problem with *all* replacement parts providers is they need masters. Sure, most have one, maybe two if they're luck, "full time" masters makers, but their plate is always full. And regardless of what we think, they can't provide everything. :-) If you want something, build it, but build it close to perfect. Then send that master to the part provider of your choice, and I bet most (if not all) would provide parts to you, and the rest of "us" would be very grateful.

Lots of flash, although that looks like it could be sanded off OK. Soft grey plastic and although I was looking through the clear sealed plastic bag, I failed to see any underwing rib detail; just a flat smooth surface? Of course, you can easily scribe your own detail, though unlike a decent vac, this plastic is so thick that you cannot see through to the other side's ribs to match them; you will have to mark off the ribs first. Looked like decals for about 3 versions including Italian, Polish (naturally) and red swastikas (Finnish). Also,some photoetch, including wire wheels (Did it have wire wheels Mr. Casirati?). The Bregeut 19 (ot) was also their - more of the same, including the bald underwing surfaces.

It was made by Pocher - same guys that make the big cars. I don't know anything about availability, but if it is anything like the cars, price must be about $300.

It is 1/24 scale, vintage 1982, and the purchaser would receive a review by Ray Rimell, and by WWI Aero along with it. As indicated , the model was designed by Arnaldo Pocher. All of the above for $300.postpaid.

OAW panels, rad, and exhaust for the big D-VII along with decals for Stark's Li. Everything looks great. Peter did a real nice job on the masters. The decals are excellent. Printed by Microscale, dead on register, clear borders are almost non-existant. The sheet includes all the kreuze with two different sizes for the fuselage kreuze along with two different sized 'Li's for either sotb or modefied models. Also included are old and new style data tables, two different style 'lift here' plackards, 4523/18 serials, various prop mfg decals, and 6 roundel bullet hole patches. Great looking stuff. Thanks E.

I, too, got the same stuff from Eric this week and have to agree with you. Very nice!! How are you doing the D.VII? Are you using the patterns from Windsock, FSM, or the guy on the list who's name I have forgotten (sorry)? I would be interested in your opinion on hao to get this particular model to look right. -Rick- "Why pay money to have your family tree traced?
