    Aces, Kyte, pure aces! I'm in the midst of painting one, but it's not going to look anywhere near as good as this one.

    It is great to see that members are taking the bull by the horns, and going for some of the less easy kits.
    Well done Jan for sticking with it.

    Here's a link to the album with my adaptations of Zoe's images.

    http://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/album.php?albumid=1184

    I found it good to have a couple of sets of wings and tail decals for adding a nose band and tidying up the wing edges. The printer I used was very generous with its red so you may want to turn it up a bit on the images before printing.

    I hope it all goes well.

    Smile Aviatik C.II in WSF

    Here is my humble offering of an Aviatik C.II one of the early war recon birds who were I guess the German equivelent of the BE2c but armed better.
    No where as colourful as the beautiful lozenged bird above but in the early part of the war everything was pretty much CDL!

    Well Baz, if we want to do the early stuff we really have to get used to this bland looking finish.
    Well done for biting the bullet.

    Here is my Aviatik, done in Linke-Crawford. Model is from Reviresco, decals from John McKeever if my memory serves (I did this one quite a while ago).

    I felt it was time to give some love to the Luftfahrtruppen of Austro-Hungary! I've always had a soft spot for the Aviatik D1 (and for B-deck fighters), so I have decided to create my own Flik to battle in the sky's of Europe. These will be a purely fictional group to whom I will give emblems and possibly even names.

    Just need to paint the foot hole for getting in to finish. I know the decals are not particularly historically accurate but I had a load of Rubicon 1/56 vehicle decals laying around and thought they looked good for the job. Model is an Ares Sabeditsch of which I have picked up a few at a great price.

    I do have a half flight of Albatrii, which are fictional, a part of Andy's Waspen Jasta.
    They fought through part of our solo campaign some years ago against my Bulldogs, and it was great fun.
    I hope you get as much fun out of your Austro-Hungarians Steven. They certainly look as if they are going to make a colourful addition to the war front.

    I do like colourful planes Phillip.
    Thanks Rob, I've always had a tendency to collect and play the less popular nations in almost every game I play. The Austro Hungarians don't get the attention that Germany get (probably rightly), so I am drawn to them. Add to that my soft spot for the Aviatik and the inspiration is there.

    Pity we don't live closer Steve. I could entertain you with my Italian Squadriglia.

    Nice-looking paint job Steven!

    As others have said, there's nothing wrong with a fictional paint scheme, fictional pilot names and fictional squadrons.
    I myself have a fictional Jasta planned - I have the minis and decals, but not the time as yet...............

    Cheers Tim! I found coming up with the paint scheme and making up the decals quite fun, I recommend a good fictional group of planes thoroughly. Good luck with yours.

    Rob, I do pop up Notts way a couple of times a year, maybe a good ol' Wings bash is not totally out of the question! I keep trying to get to a show too, who knows?
