Since December 4, 2000 seems like a rather long gestation period, which perhaps explains the nature of the reply. Candice, while I appreciate your sentiments, arming us with clubs and locking us up in a room seems a bit extreme. I easily achieve a club-like effect all the time armed with only an X-Acto knife, tweezers and CA - - and I've got the models (well, just a few. I'm very slow.) to prove it!

On the same page the other pictures have a gun in a mount on the floor of the tunnel. Further in the notes, the point is made that early Gotha's had two guns upper and lower and a different tunnel setup to later models which allowed the upper gun to fire downwards through the tunnel.

First, this is a nice kit. As already reviewed by someone whose name has long since left me, it is well molded, no flash, extra parts and great decals. It may just be me but the plastic seems to be a little softer than Toko so a lighter touch with sand paper is called for. The kit builds into very nice sub-assemblies. The fuselage and lower wing is one assembly. When complete, the floorboard, seat and controls fall into place. The interior assembly fits on the lower wing; no pegs or ledges, it just lays there the way its supposed to. My only problem so far is D.IIIa nose insert. The kit has both the buried and external gun nose option. I'm building the external gun version and I had to do extensive interior sanding to get the engine to fit. The engine has four pegs that touch the inside of this piece. The engine wanted to fit at a slight angle so I slowly sanded them off. Didn't work. The entire nose piece has to be sanded as thin as you can get it then the engine will fit as designed. The engine is presently in place. The exhaust is added after painting. Two exhaust options are included. I haven't gotten to the struts yet so I don't know if we will have the dreaded non fitting struts. I do have them cleaned and drilled for rigging and they are very delicate with nice locating pins. All in all this is a very nice kit. I will be doing Degelow's Leaping Stag as I have wanted the color scheme for years. I highly recommend this kit.

Changing the subject: I was accidentally listening to the local radio station at work yesterday, whilst moving my car, when I heard a snippet. An old man called in about a crash during WW1, when a plane had hit the church tower at St Ives, and fallen into the church. He had gone along to see, and his mother had collected a few souvenirs, including a bit of a wing (his words). He still had this on his mantelpiece, used as a photo holder. Not sure why the story was on the radio, but the church spire still shows the different stone used to rebuild it, and a local pub is called "The Aviator" in deference to the pilot, who died.

At one store I was able to buy a Pegasus Halberstadt CL and a Meikraft SPAD XIII at 30 percent off. Then a few blocks away I found a store selling some old OT kits and bought a Revell Nieuport 17 for $5.79 and a Bristol Fighter for $4.50! I would have preferred to have found a Revell S.E. 5a or two, but I wasn't that lucky. I almost didn't buy the Bristol, since I already have one put together. I made it about 15 years ago, and it just needs a little reworking. It was just hard passing on an OOP kit at that price.

Yesterday I prepared two seats from PART PE set and today morning I started wondering what was the rear cockpit look like. No control stick, no rudder pedals, no wheels on cockpit sides, no control panel - that I'm quite sure but did observer had the same wicker seat as pilot? I doubt. It would be very difficult to use guns sitting in that kind of "armchair". So I need picture or drawing of rear cockpit of fighter version of Strutter. Or maybe somebody can describe it? I do not know what to do. This evenng I will work on engine, fuselage will wait for a while. -- Witold Kozakiewicz ------------------------------ Date: Thu, 01 Feb 2001 09:21:32 +0700 From: Volker Haeusler To: wwi@pease1.sr.unh.edu Subject: RE: Roden Plalz D.IIIa Message-ID: Dennis, I think I was the one who already had a look at this aircraft. I had the same experience with the engine - you really have to EXTREMELY reduce the depth of the inside. However, once you´ve done that, the engine cover (seen from above) looks just wonderful. As for the struts, I have them fitted already, and they seem ok. however, I only had a dry run for the upper wing until now (no progress since one month, I admit). BTW, looking on the MAC kit, the attachment of the rear cabane strut at the fuselage is another weak point I did only notice now. Compared to photos (and the Roden kit), they are a little on the low side, quite noticable in that small scale. Looking on the Degelow stag, the Roden transfers look a little fat for me - I wonder wether this stag would really leap as depicted. What´s your opinion?

First, this is a nice kit. As already reviewed by someone whose name has long since left me," snip ------------------------------ End of WWI Digest 3041 **********************
