    Thank you, I am courious too .

    Some WIP photo. I wanted to try rigging, because it is important visual part of the plane. Will see if it survives heat of the battle

    Thank you, much appreciated.

    Now I am not sure about rigging. I thought it will be capable to survive the handling (and I still do) but I forget we use smoke trail markers that you hook on the wing. And riging is in its way. :/.

    I found the same problem with my Pfalz E.I and E.II models

    I'm having to make special flame and smoke markers which avoid the rigging.

    (before any of the Forum Captain Obvious' make their input, YES I DO know about the flame and smoke markers which attach to the flight pegs: I own sets from Aerodrome Accessories, Litko and Pyrkol, but none look as good as markers hooked onto the plane model itself)

    If I didn't know better, I would have thought, "That has to be 1:72 or larger!" The rigging is especially good.

    I thought I was a modeler, but that is rediculous! As my oldest grandson would say, that is sick! I mean, LOWER rigging AND a windscreen! I will go hang my head in shame now Petr.
    Just beautiful.

    Thank you very much, friends. My models are far from perfect, but they are for play and from playing distance they look realy nice to me . You would be surprise that (once they are ready to print) it does not take too much time to build them. To design,unrol and texture them is time eater here.

    To see realy unbelievable 1/144 scratchbuild plastic models (not playable though) just look here:

    Builder is jeweler and I am in awe ewerytime I look at his models.

    The lattice of the DH.2s sound like quite a challenge! Look forward to seeing more.

    The lattice of DH.2 will be interesting . It will need some tests to find out best ratio between sufficient rigidity and nicely small thickness. I am slaping together fast and simple DH.2 test "dummy" to play with.

    With Fokker E.III It is funny how fragile the model feels (even to me who knows how it is constructed) because of detailing and riggig. But in fact it is stiff. You can hold it with quite a pressure by fuselage, wingtips, rudder or tailplane with no problem. Chance of damage by falls on the table or ground are very small due to its small weigth. I accidentaly droped it few times from cca 1,5m and nothing happend so far. And being so lightweigth, it holds its position perfectly on gimbal. I hate to play with some original models because of its problems to hold steady on gimbal. Only thing prone to damage is rigging because it is just hair.
