For you WWI lovers this just popped up on the classifieds. I would have grabbed it but I'm over committed on two planes and a new DX6 radio. Seller will ship looks like a nice size that should look close to the Albatros size and scale.

Did some scale work last night. Added some paint. I'm going with a light blue/green/purple color scheme with ivory white as a base coat and for trim work.
I have the wheels and wheel struts done and most of the fuselage. I have to reattach all the goodies up front in the engine compartment as well.
Found a couple good lozenge stencils on the web. May hit Callie up this time, or print my own.

Updates as they happen

Not familiar with the manufacturer, so I'll pass (nightmare models from the 1960's insist I pass).

Still flying the mint PNP and love it more and more. I have sold off some parts from the crashed plane, wheels, still have other non foamy stuff. For it's size it has great presence in the air. I'm a scale fan, just love the look in the air. That's my newb interest for now, early on mind you, could change, and that's fine too.
Great deal on that Alby MK 2!

I have only been flying for almost two years, and the Albatros is definatey a favorite. I too love scale planes. I think this one is one of my more challenging planes. Not because it's way harder to fly. But more ablut wanting not to scratch it! And it's sweet looks!

I like the brown pannels. Looks like you penned in the lines? Or just looks like it has dimension from the foam.

Yo chin....guardian in the mail. Should be there next Wednesday. I'll shoot you the tracking number shortly.
Thosmosis- thanks. I used a few toothpicks lined up and "combed" the panels by hand. Then went behind that with a base color and then over that with a darker color to accentuate the grooves.
