If I get any more I wil try to remove them.
    I wouldn't go filling in the ailerons just yet Peter. The Morane L parasol employed wing warping whereas the Morane P (which these appear to be) had ailerons.

    I didn't see it at all!

    It's one of Max Headroom's cards - I merely adjusted the aircraft stats using "Paint"

    I'll try to fix the wing the same way..............

    Looks as if Max used a monoplane template and added a top wing to it, but didn't switch on a layer.

    OK, here's some cards. I've done them to match Peter's planes, so I've not matched schemes up to any particular pilots yet. That will come later when I get a bit of time

    I cannot fathom even attempting to add cables like you have.

    Thanks Pete. It wasn't as difficult as I had imagined but...I'm hoping they will stand up to handling during game play. They better not end up turning into a Chinese Finger trap!

    I guess, we'll see a lot of early war birds in the near future - thanks to the DYM campaign.

    I also turned out these for early war - a brace of Morane-Saulnier BB tandem's - served with 1,3 12 & 60 Sqn RFC.
    I may be wrong, so please correct me if I am, but it appears that both guns were operated by the gunner - using one or the other as the situation demanded, having to stand to operate the one on the wing - he'd certainly have to reload it if it was operated by the pilot.
    Anyway here's the happy pair:

    I used old GW paints - screaming skull for the cdl, the darker yellow of the nose I cannot recall, the red spinner is Go Fasta Red, I used Humbrol 64 acrylic grey for the tyres, snakebite leather for props & struts, blacks, gunmetal, vermin fur for other bits & pieces, inc Peter Pig crew.

    A very interesting little pair od aircraft Dave, and question too. I don't know the answer to that one myself, but would assume you to be correct about the loading.
    As for the GW paints I still have a lot of the ones you mentioned, and what is great is that they still have not gone off, unlike the later GW ones which only seem to last about a year befor setting in the pot.

    Thanks Rob, the Lewis could be operated via a Bowden cable as it was in other types, of course, but is out of reach of the pilot for a change of pan, as can be seen from this very nice Bouchier image


    The only reference I've come across for the gunner using the over wing is these images (see link) - whether that is correct, or not, I have been unable to verify as yet. I think it's possible but expect the Bowden cable may be the real answer.

    RAF Shapeways Morane-Saulnier Type P. This one is painted for the Lafayette Escadrille. Pilot Sgt Ronald Hoskier believed a tandem was the best plane to use as a fighter. On 23 April 1917 he with observer Col Jean Dressy went aloft only to be shot down and both KIA. Kill probably credited to J20 pilot Ltn. Wilhelm Schunke.

    This plane has been painted for this Origins (2024) Sunday morning game with the Lafayette Escadrille N17s + this MS P vs Albatros D.IIIs.

    Overall color Vallejo Buff 120

    Decals, roundels and red and white striped Miscmini. Blue stripe painted. MS on tail by MDG Games, LLC.
