    The Red Baron has been done by Ares a couple of times. So, I do not think RAF has him on his radar.

    There is one on Ebay right now for $15. You may want to check it out.

    The Sopwith Triplanles look wonderful Daryl. What is next in the queue?

    Yeah, I try not to compete directly with Ares, in case they ever get around to doing reprints. That way they'll have no cause to argue that I'm costing them customers. (Even though I can't include stands, maneuver cards, and boxes.)

    Nieuport 24/24bis/27 is next. I was feeling like the French weren't getting enough attention.

    Yippee, I will get Nieport 24 for sure. You are the man, Daryl.

    I wash a plane with hot watter and the ink started bleeding. I was surprised because I thought that they are waterproof. Do you have the same experience?

    Awesome! Can you do one of the Lafayette Escadrille. I know they had three or so, but it would be cool.

    There are lots of neat looking N24.

    Having added eight Nieuport 24/27, I now turn to the Fokker E.IV, where I can finally do one of Immelmann's and Boelcke's planes:

    I added some more Austro-Hungarian Albatros D.IIIs, then I thought, "What would be really unique to add?"

    How about some Furniture Vans? (Junkers J.I) You don't see those miniatures every day.

    I ran into a problem on that one, in that all the drawings I've got have different aspect ratios (wingspan vs. length) and I don't know which one is actually correct. (Likewise the raw numbers vary from one source to the next.)

    Junkers J.I would be neat.
    Others that I think would be cool, since you asked

    Caudron R.11
    Farman M.F.11
    Farman F.40 (might be too large to do but there are some great French and Belgian schemes)
    SPAD XII
    SPAD XIV
    Tellier T.6
    Voisin 8 LAP and LBP

    And a hearty thank you and plug for Daryl's full color models: reduced aircraft factory full color
    What a great, inexpensive way to expand the range of aircraft types and schemes for the game. The maneuver decks and bases/firing arcs are usually not too tough to acquire and away you go

    The list goes ever, ever on
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the list has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can,
    But I'm just not wealthy enough! Shame huh
    Daryl, these models are amazing.
    However, I'll do my best as Sterling resources permit

    Yeah, it's a little confusing because Junkers (starting with a "J") numbered their prototypes J.1 through J.10 (or more), which were internal company names only. But the ground-attack/contact-patrol aircraft that went into production was designated the "J.I", based on the prototype "J.4".

    I read somewhere that class of aircraft (armored close support) was originally supposed to be the "I class", but since "I" and "1" are almost indistinguishable in many German fonts, they changed it to "J".

    A.E.G. and Albatros also produced J-class aircraft.

    Thanks for the info Daryl. When did the J1/J4/ you know what I mean become operational? Think I'm looking for a German two seater that fills the gap between the Roland and the Hannover?

  25. #525

    Well, the J-class aircraft (and CL, to a lesser extent) served a more specific purpose than general-purpose C-class. They were specifically meant for low-level contact patrol (where is our unit?) and ground attack, rather than general reconnaissance, artillery spotting, and light medium-level bombing. The Junkers J.I flew its first missions in August 1917 and remained in use until the Armistice.

    If you want to know what C-class two-seaters were in use in each month of the war, I recommend the two-seater chart on Wings of Linen. It still puzzles me that Ares never produced a D.F.W. C.V. It dominates the chart from summer 1917 onward, only losing dominance near the end. Of Ares-produced planes, maybe the Rumpler C.IV would fit the bill.

    Hi Daryl have you ever thought of doing an 185th Aero Camel? It was one of the few U.S. units to fly the camel with U.S. markings.

    If the link works it's period footage of the unit.

    I would love to see some various American SPAD XIII Squadrons. 13th, 28th, 49th, 93rd, 95th, 103rd, 138th, 139th, 141st, 147th, or 213th.

    My particular favorites are the third pursuit group. The 28th, 93rd, 103rd, and the 213th.

    Good suggestions all...thanks! I think I'll do some new paint schemes for planes I've already done before moving to the next new full-color plane (which is a lot more work). Including planes suggested here and elsewhere...

    Here's Kelton's Camel: https://shpws.me/TzKM

    It's interesting because they painted the undersides in PC10/PC12 also, since it was a night fighter unit.

    That being so, it's got to be the easiest Camel to paint.

    Yeah, I guess they weren't as worried about being blinded by the gun flashes. Probably a good thing, because I got the feeling that in the very short career of the 185th, they performed more conventional missions than nighttime interception.

    I've added four new American SPAD 13's. I'm thinking of 1-2 British SPAD 13s from No.23 Squadron next.

    After finishing off a small pile of SPAD13 and Sopwith Dolphin paint schemes, I decided to add a new plane type, the Fokker E.V (aka the D.VIII):

    I was curious how it would break down if I listed the available planes (mine and Ares') by unit. You can find the result on the first posting after the original in this thread. I'll try to keep that one up to date as well as the original post. (And I need to find the units on some of the Ares planes.)

    Perhaps it's no surprise that I've got the best coverage on Jastas 2, 11, and 18 for the Germans; 23, 60, Naval 3, and Naval 10 for the British; Escadrilles 3 and 124 (Lafayette) for the French. I do need to get more coverage for No.56 squadron, a few Jastas, and some Storks for the French. And see if I can find someone to fly with Rickenbacker (other than the post-war 94th Aero Squadron showbirds.)

    It's been a couple of months since my last purchase which I'm sure completed ALL the planes I wanted. Surely it must be safe now to look at Daryl's page to see what he's been doing - just a look mind you. And there they were - three Spad XIII's of 23 squadron Order will be on its way soon - well it's my birthday soon - well that's my excuse n I'm sticking to it.
