Hello all -
I've posted some pictures of my scratchbuilt Albatros C.I in the gallery.
Eric.......... see the post for paperwarbirds contest..........any one of your builds would be a shoe-in.
Just my opinion.
Anyway for entering you get a Fokker DR1. Not that you need to buy an already designed bird!
I noticed that earlier. I might throw my hat in the ring.
Well, it would save me an awful lot of work
There's only so long any self-respecting WWI-ophile can get away with not having a Dr.I on the shelf, but that kite isn't one I would look forward to scratchbuilding.
That is such a beautiful technique, letting the structure of the paper and other material provide the character of the model. You are establishing a school of paper modeling in your own right. - Leif
Very clean style. Pristine in it's accomplishment. I'm in agreement with Leif, your selection of media is penultimate to the looks of the finished work. An art in a class by itself.
Eric......... I get the pun.........when will you do a Nieuport 28 with those markings?
No pun intended, actually.
But now that you mention it, the 28 is a fine-looking bird. Seems like I add one to the to-do list just about every day . . . . .
Here's site you might be interested in........
you might already know of it.
Yep - one of my favorites. Todd does beautiful work. His Albatros B.II inspired the C.I, actually.
This is why I get so frustrated and destroy any of my builds thus far. My skill isnt in spitting distance to this. Great job.
One note in regards to the Paperwarbirds contest, I do believe this particular build is considered published, thus not qualified. But, please do correct me if I'm wrong.
