Thread: Selling my collection

  1. #1

    Default Selling my collection

    Hi, I am selling my collection. It will take me a few days to catalogue, but in the meantime wanted to share two pictures of handpainted gasbags, one from Shapeways and the other resin cast.

    Thanks, Rob! I will definitely not leave the hobby or the community! Just making some room in my life and while i love each and every one of my planes, it makes sense for me to let them go. But it is excruciating! Maybe I will hang on to one or two of my Austrian repaints...Like my Bromowski and my Oefag 153 Albatross D.IIIs with the "sofa cushion" camo or my flying boat repaints...

    Sad to see you leave the hobby, but it is understandable. Those seaplanes are quite nice! How much you want for them. I have some gaps that need filled so I am interested in what you want to let go of.

  7. #7

    Default

    Here is the first part of the list. All planes are $10 plus shipping unless otherwise indicated. All planes are in good condition unless noted but have been played with and I have no original boxes unless indicated. I will only charge for actual shipping. If you want a plane but think it's too expensive, please PM me. Austrian, German and French and Belgian planes are still come, as are the bombers.

    I can send pictures of repaints upon request.

    All,

    thank you very much for all your interest and orders. The response has been fantastic and I am very happy to know that interest in our hobby is alive and well.

    I have been swamped with PMs, thank you. I have sent a PM to everyone that has requested some planes. I will put out a revised list soon, as well as a list of the remaining planes. Please be patient, this is a lot more work than I thought, particularly while pursuing my day job (which allowed me to amass my collection). If I have not responded to you, please PM me again--I was careful to catch everyone but if I missed your message, I apologize.

    That is because most of the high ranks are for sitting on HQ and drinking beer from Pilsen or Budweis. I am the perfect example
    Hope this does not mean you are finishing WoG completely...?

    Here is a list of my Austrian planes--these are my babies.

    Plane Pilot Manufacturer Price

    Aviatik D.I Linke-Crawford Diecast repaint, Aerodrome stand
    Aviatik D.I Sabeditsch Ares
    Albatross D.II Szepessy-Sokol Ares
    Albatross D. III Oefag 153 Brumoski (skull) Shapeway repaint,
    no stand, handmade plane card for late war model (flies B-deck), Hautzmayer plane card for standard J-deck, J-deck maneuver cards
    Albatross D.III Oefag 153 Brumoski (red/yellow camo) Shapeway repaint,
    handmade plane card, earlier war model flies J-deck
    Phoenix C.1 Austrian Navy Shapeway repaint, no stand or maneuver cards (uses K deck), B/B
    Phoenix D.I Gruber Ares
    Phoenix D.I Unpainted, canvas base paint Shapeways
    Phoenix D.I Unpainted, primed Shapeways
    Phoenix D.II K.u.K. Seeflieger Shapeway repaint, no stand or maneuver cards (uses Q deck), handmade plane card
    Hansa-Brandenburg C.1 Flik 19 Shapeway repaint, no stand or maneuver cards (uses K deck), handmade plane card

    UFAG C.1 Luftfahrttruppen 2 Nexus
    UFAG C.1 Luftfahrttruppen 1 Nexus repaint
    UFAG C.1 Luftfahrttruppen 1 Nexus, in box $12

    For those of you that have never seen the "sofa cushion camo", here is a sample (no actual samples exist, these are based on research by some experts on K.u.K. aviation). The story behind this is that it is based on curtains or a sofa Brumowski or one of this colleagues saw and thought that it would make effective camo on a moving plane). Remember that at the time aviators were experimenting with all kinds of different colors and patterns. On my planes I used a version that has mauve instead of green.

    This is my Staaken, model from Shapeways. The plane is covered in decals--I was hoping (and feel) it gives the effect of a canvas covered plane (rather than a painted one), since the fabric was printed and then put on the plane (rather than painted on the canvas after it was on the plane). I used applied the decal the way the fabric would be sewn, that is, the fabric sheets were applied from the front of the wing to the back (i.e., vertical) rather than in one long run from wingtip to wingtip (i.e., horizontal). I hope that makes sense. I also used slightly different color decals since on a plane from time to time strips would be replaced so the coloring is not uniform. It took me a month to complete. One of the wheels broke off as you can see in the pictures; I still have the wheel, you will need to attach it yourself. Stand from Oberst Hajj. This was made before the Kickstarter made the Ares models available.

    Default Hadley Page O/400

    Here are my two HP o/400, again Shapeways repaints. I was experimenting on getting the British linseed oil color right--my research showed that it was not a greenish green but a brownish green as a result of the mix of linseed oil and pigment. I lost my notes so I don't know which squadron I used for the livery.

    Default Short and Ursinus

    These are pictures of my Gotha G.1 Ursinus and my two Short bombers. The Gotha has an Aerodrome stand. One of the Short bombers has night camo, meaning that there is no white in the rondel so it does not stand out at night. No stands or cards for the Shorts.

    Hi Dan-Sam,

    great to hear from you. Absolutely not! Listing all of the planes for sale makes me want to play again...

    I dunno what it is, but something about the long wings of the Short Bombers is kind of unnerving.

    Beautiful work on all the bombers, it's not surprising that they went quickly!

    All,

    I have shipped all packages and sent a PM with shipping details. Thanks all! There will be a lot of extra planes flying around!

    I still have about 1/3 of my painted planes, 20-30 Shapeways and a bunch of decals, which I will put up when I recover from this first round, in a week or two.
