    I do like the stripes one Darell not dared have a go at this one yet. Are the stripes decals or a steady hand?

    Super work Darell.
    Yes, please do tell us more about the skull and the stripes.
    I have tried to get oblique striped decals onto fuselages and working out the actual spiral curve for a diminishing sized cigar shape is very difficult.

    To Chris also. I painted fuselage black over all. Engine,struts landing gear and lower wing removed. Cut 2mm strip Tayima tape and wound it from front to rear another strip 1mm wide same thing . Then painted white, remove tape reassemble. Not sure what skull your asking about?

    You make it sound so easy Darell!
    I know how difficult it is to apply even tape to a diminishing surface, never mind keeping two strips parallel.
    I think Eric was on about Michael's skulls.
    Thanks for the reply.

    I have always liked Rumey's checker pattern. If I do any more Jasta 5 models it will certainly include that one.

    Default My first repaint and touching up some of the WoG planes

    Below is my first repaint for Jasta 5, and touched up Von Hippel's and Baumer's paint jobs to get the color schemes more in line to what is posted on the net. Von Hippel's, I changed the fuselage to grey from the light blue and added red rings to the front and rear prior to the tail. Baumer's plane I repainted the struts, and repainted the fuselage where it would be just a wood color. The repaint it possible that this is a Joseph Mai machine prior to the addition of its crescent moon and star. I'm going to try to to represent as many of the Albatross's present at the Boistrancourt aerodrome in July of 1917.

    Really impressive paint jobs one and all.

    I'm glad to fly for the Central Powers because these planes are far too pretty to shoot at!

    Rob, thanks, and I figured I could produce 5 more at least with what decals are available and what paint jobs I can reproduce. After that I'll have to look into some way of getting some one of decals printed.

    Nick, thanks, I'm the only one in the family that has mainly Central Power planes, so at least I won't have to shoot down my own work!!
