    Default Official Pfalz D.III painting thread.

    To date I've only done one of these planes. It's really a shame as they are good looking birds!

    They all look pretty good to me although the J5 green tail and Blue Max version really caught my eye.

    Is the Otto one an actual one? It looks cool. Where can I find the markings for it to look at?

    Hi Cal, I found this on a Rise of Flight site and then on the Aerodrome forum in a listing of Phalz from the late Dan San Abbott.
    So as far as I know he is real.
    One variation shows the Phalz with a white tail

    This is the rise of flight link
    From here I went to the aerodrome, but the link doesn't work now ?
    Try google Otto Schulz images you will get a couple more.
    If you a member of the aerodrome ask them, the original link had a good half dozen profiles of Phalz from Mr Abbott

    Beautiful! I will soon start to paint my first planes but will go easy at the start and paint up some Sopwith Pups. No hard schemes to begin with. Later on when I get up my confidence
    I'll tackle some Germans. It will be nice to have a flight of 3-4 planes in the same Jasta colors.

    Nice work guys!

    Sir,

    Those are simply some of the most beautiful repaints I have seen on a forum that regularly showcases the awesome work some of our members are capable of. Bravo!

    If you are considering doing any of the other aircraft in the Jasta, do drop me a P.M.

    That's a seriously nice Pfalz. Kudos.
    Did you airbrush it or all hand brushed?

    It's hand painted - I have an airbrush, and a compressor, bought around ten years ago, but I've never had them out of the box (techno-phobia!). I really must give them a go sometime. I had a little trouble with the white paint; it doesn't show on the model on the table, but the close-up pictures do show it up a bit.

    That is certainly a colour scheme to attract attention Alex.
    You have achieved a very nice effect with the painting.
    Must have a very steady hand.

    You all have done some marvelous work on these little scouts! Time to get some Shapeways Pfalz DIIIs and paint 'em up (since the Nexus/Ares versions are scarce and so expensive).

    Thanks for the inspiration, folks!

    All the best,
