    Somewhere near the Western Front in the spring of 1916, this pilot reminds himself that even if he's not seeing the glory Fokker eindecker pilots do, at least he's flying a good, solid Bavarian aircraft. Shapeways model by Colinwe, painted with Vallejo products; decals by Mehusla and Dom's Decals.

    Nice reference!

    This particular paint scheme cried out for rigging, what with the small rectangular reinforcement patches on the wings..................
    I couldn't resist!

    Lovely work, indeed, Tim! There is something about that black outlining on the Pfalz that I've always found eye-catching - very nicely executed.

    All the best,

    Beautiful Tim - love the rigging and the fuselage decals! Did you print those yourself? Wire spoked wheels next time perhaps?

    Yes, the fuselage decals are homebrew - my first success with such, after several disasters using Inkjet. These were done on my work's Laser printer, once everyone else had nipped off home!
    The numerals are a bit "fuzzy" from the resizing when viewed close-up with a camera, but look just fine to the naked eye.

    The prototype wire-spoked wheels are almost finished...................................

    Tim you still cannot see the join where you dropped it
    A very worthy winner at the Prague Con this year. Beat Alexis Sayles plane by a mile, and his was good.


    I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings
    Coming down is the hardest thing

    Congratulations on winning the painting competition in Prague, Tim! It's a stunner, indeed!

    All the best,
    Matt
