I'm not a stickler for accuracy, but I usually add extra bits is that I don't like the finished model to look too featureless. No I'm not likely to add a head-up display and a couple of ejector seats (that's an idea), so please don't point out historical irregularities as I may be forced to spread malicious rumours about that hamster you were seen with last Tuesday.

I decided that I didn't want to slavishly follow the schemes from the box, so after a bit of research I found this aircraft. It's a very little known example that lasted only a couple of weeks before it met it's inevitable end - but not before shooting down four aircraft! That quickly becomes less impressive when you learn that one was an observation balloon (hard to miss); unfortunately two were from their own squadron and after the gunner shot off their own fin, they added themselves to their less than glorious tally. Both crew survived but weren't trusted with fire-arms let alone another plane for the remainder of the conflict. After the war they went on to form the rarest of beasts, a German comedy double-act. For such an interesting aircraft (it seems the crew chose every quirky option available) it's very poorly documented and represented in the modelling world. *

 

*History nazis please note: Every word of this is rubbish – it's not a representation of something that really existed, it's just a model. I like to think of it as a Luftstreitkrafte-19 build.

The Triplane on the side.

Calling this finished despite the lack of a gun. Not my best ever model but given that it's my first WW1 thing,don't slag me too much.

I don't have anything suitable so it will have to be unarmed until I raid @Che Guava's spare box.

Nor your worst!

Actually lookin' dam' fine. You're getting so good at rigging you should stand for election to the local council.

My strange perversion for building civvies out of WMDs means I should have few Vickers and Lewises going spare you're welcome to.

My attempt at a "Male" Mk1 Tank is complete. I have enjoyed building this little tank, it's been good to build something different for a change, in fact I'll have to look at building another tank some time. Thanks for all your comments and "likes"

Eduard 1:48 Albatross DIII. A most enjoyable build, no extras, paints were a mix of Vallejo Air and Model Master. Wood effect my own effort using a mix of acrylic paints to simulate the grain. Any hoo here she is!
