    Can't figure this picture rotate gremlin! How does it happen? Both shots were are upright on my phone and pc, but uploaded sideways! Rats!

    Meanwhile found these crayon boxes at Walmart today in the school stuff section at $1 each. 2.875" x 3.875" x 1.25" deep. Would hold a plane and cards/base and bits nicely. Mini crate, same price holds 8 and they stack and connect. Could be handy . . . sorry my scale does not do metric . . .

    I’m starting to think that all phone shots need to be taken landscape to have them show in the correct orientation. Must experiment when I get a moment!

    Found some ho scale model rail road letters and I thought hmmm.... I have an extra Nieuport 11 so lets see what I can do. Put on a "L" and a really small "R" for a Raoul Luftbery Nieuport 11. Didn't turn out as great as I had hoped, but I am happy.

    Might have to make a trip to WALMART. You can always use a storage case for whatever. Thanks for that info David.
    I also have that trouble with the phone photos. Someday I will figure it out.

    New planes came in from Dave (AIM) so working on them. Hope to get some decaled tomorrow.

    Two more Fokker DVII from the Aeronaut books (in the foreground - the background planes, LTn Josef Muller and Oblt Eduard Ritter von Schliech, were posted earlier)

    1) White Fokker = Ltn Heinrich Seywald, Royal Bavarian Jasta 23 (acting Staffelfuhrer 29 May 18 to 2 Jun 18 and Staffelfuhrer afterwards).

    2) Orange Fokker with the witch = Ltn August Hartmann, Royal Prussian Jasta 30 (Jul/Nov 18). Hartmann called his plane his 'Hexle' (little with in the Palatine dialect).

    The lozenge decals for Jasta 23 plus the witch decal (as well as the swan and von Schliech crest in the background) are homemade. The rest are valom decals.

    Thanks, guys.

    When I got the aeronaut books I was a bit discouraged by all the profiles of planes of swans, witches, etc. I thought crap can’t do those but I hadn’t tried to make my own decals at that point. Turns out it’s been far easier than I thought.

    I love this new version of your Martians, Dave! Where/what are you making their heat-ray from? It looks great - and I love the copper coils around the base of the 'turret...

    Keep up the inspirational work!

    Have not been getting any painting done the last few weeks as I have been at a Pennsic War in PA here in the US. Jager did drop by a couple of time so we got a shot of us in my tent (I am in the Green). Got home yesterday and likely will start up painting this afternoon (if my sore exhausted body will cooperate)

    Thanks, Peter.

    It's been fun to go through the Aeronaut books and come up with plans for each Jasta. For Jasta 30 I have 2 more Valom Fokker DVIIs (Hans Holthausen and an unknown pilot / yellow tail stripes - Pheon has these as black) and 1 more Albatros DV (Joachim von Bertram). After I get those done I will do 3 Shapeways Albatros DIII (Nernst, Bethge and Seitz) and 3 Shapeways Pflaz DIII (Katzenstein, Kaus and an unknown pilot - profile 46 on page 197). I'll certainly have got my money's worth from the book.

    Btw I have all the decals I've used so far in Corel Draw documents scaled for 1/144.
