I finally got to painting the pilot figure that mtflyr (Pete) molded. More molded in detail than most humans can paint. Yes, he's a "ginger". I was mixing colors for another pilot I was painting trying to get the right brown leather color and the eyebrows are done with an intermediate color I stumbled on during the process. The scarf is Esaki tissue. It really dresses the plane up. Thanks Pete!

Ran a couple more batteries through it at the last indoor session. The big prop makes for rudder trim changes with throttle. I may try some throttle rudder mix, a smaller prop, or both to get that under control. Like every other Dr.1 I've flown, it has to be flown the whole time it is in the air and does not act nice if you get ham fisted with the stick.

Needs some guns. The photo etched guns from overseas look like the best candidate if I can assemble them neatly.
