    No one that I know of... it's not historical that I'm aware.

    A nice clean looking machine, that will blend into the clouds waiting to pounce on the allied pilots!!!

    Pity they don't produce one of those Herr Oberst. It would make an easy repaint job.

    Oh no, why do you this to me Herr Oberst? Such dilemmas: I like all white Albatros, but I have the Weber's one in my collection, but I have another (with white stripes) in my signature... OK, Albatros from signature won! Thank you very much

    Does anyone knows something about this concerete plane?

    That bird belongs to Flashar of Jasta 5. It was supposed to be one of the new paint jobs for Series 1 reprints. However, they are calling it Von Hippel's plane on the card (Von Hippel did fly it, but it was not "his" plane but for a very short time).

    In due time. Max and I are working on getting all of the miniatures out as avatars.

    Great work Chaps!
    Now how about some British ones? Say McCuddens with the No. 6 & Red spinner & Mannock's Nieuport 23 with the Yellow Spinner?

    Yes, you are completely right. This plane was flown by two pilots:
    1. Oblt. Richard Flashar - Commanding officer of Jasta 5 (10 June 1917 - 31 December 1917 and 14 January 1918 - 12 May 1918), 1 confirmed victory (sometimes written with wrong name Flascher);
    2. Lt. Hans Joachim von Hippel - inherited the plane after Flashar, 2 confirmed victories.

    Very nice set of goodies, Herr Oberst. Thank you both. Am I right that A-H (K.u.K.) avatars are quite rare...
    You have changed your avatar as well, I see. Is it a historical scheme (whose)?

    Even more great planes to choose from. At this rate every member on the site will be able to have an individual Avatar.

    Nope, not at all historical... see this thread for a little background info on it. I've not had the time to repaint a D.VII for the campaign though

    Yep, those are the two Neiuports from the BB sets.

    It's a simple drop down shadow added in Photoshop.

    Thanks for that! That's way easier than free handing the shadow!

    EDIT:

    Woop! And done! Thanks for the tips guys, and the cool Dilthey card artwork, Max!

    Added more WWI avatars, this should complete all of the avatars that there are currently minis for.

    Also added some love for the WWII guys!











    That is just a few of them. Big thanks to Max Headroom again!

    Why thank you.

    That had to be the easiest avatar in the world. Normally end up pulling my hair out trying to find a picture to add to a forum. Gotta love a decent Admin Team

    I'm with you on that, I was thinking of adding one but was unsure of the process.
    It was so simple that I feel rather stupid now! :embarass:

    Thanks Herr Oberst and Max
