Revell Albatross D.III (Lt B. Loerzer 1917)

I´ve already built one of these, painted up in the colours of Ltn . Werner Voss, Jasta 2 Boelcke, June 1917.  but I really like the look of Albys so I couldn´t resist doing another.
This one is in the colours of Lt Bruno Loerzer, Jasta 26, westen front, summer 1917.
 Stringbags!!!! I love em!! :-D
Hello to Chasseur...from For Honour´s Sake blog. Long time member of the Bennos forum he´s now gone over to the "dark side"...the bigger than 20mm stuff!!!!!!!! :-D
The idea of making a drill into a mini lathe is a great one...I´m going to pinch that one mate.

  6. Great work Paul. It is a sharp looking bird. Only problem with the Revell kit is they don't give you the teeny tiny Albatros logos for the rudder. Bruno Loerzer used a similar pattern on a Fokker Dr.I, Albatros D.V and a Fokker D.VII too. Many of the pilots in Jasta 26 started using similar schemes. Some British pilots called them the Black and White Jasta. I understand your Albatros addiction. I am an Albatros junkie too. When I was doing plastic I ran out of shelf space. Now I can churn them out to my heart's content, or I run out of source material.

    Cheers
