    Here are my two Albatros DIs. I went for the natural wood look. These are Shapeways models. Decals are the ones at the Aerodrome Store specifically for the Albatros DI. One came without a prop so I put on one from the Aerodrome Store.

    Very nice, Peter! I particularly like the staining/wood finish you have on the fuselages of these two. I have to get a couple of these myself - I have a couple of DIIs I'm planning on repainting, but I'd like some DIs, too...

    All the best,
    Matt

    Base coat is a a yellow tan, then I painted the seams. The grain look is from a heavy wash that I kept streaking the brush over. All the paints were Vallejo as well as the wash.
    Not sure I wrote down the colors but if I did I'll pass them on.

    Those Albatros show a great attention to detail, Peter. Very nice. I'm glad I came back to take a better look. Thanks for sharing!

    Btw, did you build those flight stands, or were they purchased as is?

    Thanks Chris. The bases are Litko. The extending magnet tool I got at Sears. Gimbal set from Aerodrome Store.
    The magnet tool has a pocket clip. Luckily it is screwed in at the end. I removed the clip and bought different screws, the ones that have a funnel shaped head. I had to drill a bevel into the base to fit the screws. If we ever put on a game with altitude these will work great.

    Very impressive Jasta line-up.
    Seems like you've made full use of the Aviation Wings decal sheet

    You spotted that?
    Not quite full use just yet - still 2 more Jasta 2 kites to come (the all-green Dieter Collin and Prinz Friedrich Karl, plus Jasta 5's Spitzhoff). These will come soon, along with various Jasta 2 Albatros D.IIs.

    Many thanks for the REP!

    Smashing stuff, Tim - such pretty color schemes - simple but 'colorful'... I like the 'early war' stuff quite a lot...

    Keep up the inspiring work.

    Thanks for the REP Matt!

    I really like the early stuff, too. I have actually bypassed a load of 1915 kites in order to do these, and then to progress into 1917.
    I need to radically speed up production if I am to get a chance to do more early planes.

    Very nice Tim. Albatros D.Is, soon to be the new rage in OTT.

    Outstanding Tim, truly outstanding. Hard to follow, but here's my humble contribution. Two Shapeways models by Reduced Aircraft Factory. Paints a mixture of Valejo and Misterkit. The decals are partly from Miscmini (the crosses) and my own efforts. The latter are poor by comparison with others, partly because of lack of skill on my part and partly because I only have a relatively cheap inkjet printer. But I like to try They represent Ltns Otto Höhne and Jürgen Sandel of Jasta 2 and have been painted up in readiness for the forthcoming OTT campaign, "Bold Young Men" covering October to December 1916.

    Mike, there is a guy in Canada selling decals sets and Alb DI and II are some of them. Not sure if shipping would make it out of the question. I have these sets and I think they are worth it.
