    Just finished three of these beauties....







    These are designed to operate as a uit on table. Notice the leader's streamer between the struts on the lead plane.

    I'll second that! Great to see some less well-known two-seaters getting a flight too.

    Nah, just kidding!

    They are decals - ultra-thin black lines produced by Kevin @ Miscmini

    https://miscmini.com/shop/ols/produc...4-scale-decals

    These are the ones I used for the wing rib tapes on my Pfalz E.I and E.II planes...

    Fiddly, but well worth the effort!

    The attention to detail is excellent -- just looking at the pictures you would guess they are 1:72 or larger. The Albatros C.VII was the most common German two-seater in early 1917, just before the meteoric rise of the D.F.W. C.V.

    I don't have any cards yet but after a very enlightening conversation @ 'Attack' I am trying to sort one (or more) out.

    Good luck, my fingers are too big for this work really on Valom kits. I did use all the metal parts apart from the rear gun

    Baz,

    I thought that such a great paint job deserves a card to match, so I mocked this up for you. Hope it meets your needs.
