My pleasure to present you my vision of Albatros B.II flown by members of civilian Polish Aviators' Union (Związek Lotników Polskich) from Poznań-Ławica airfield in 1925.
Wingnut Wings model was converted to late configuration using the well recommendable set prepared by Melius Manu including resin bits for stick controls, upper wing radiator, exhaust manifold, tail skid, broad struts and the icing on the cake - top class decals. Besides it I used Taurus Models resin bits for Mercedes D.II engine (timing gear, spark plugs, priming cups), Scale Spokes spoked wheels and the propeller is from custom cut veneer layers coming from a fellow modeller.
Let me thank Szymon and Kajetan from Melius Manu, Bogdan from Mr.Decal, Artur for the presented propeller -without you this model would have never been built!

My Amigo beat me to it again!  His words express my thoughts exactly.  I think this may be the purest representation of a WWI vintage aircraft I've ever seen.  I love it!  I could stare at these images for hours, but I've got to get back to work on my Nieuports.
Cheers,
Bud

Prez I ran out of superlatives for your models a very long time ago. This is just another example of your extraordinary skill in building/converting a kit and turning it into something completely different. As usual I raise my hat to a master modeller.

Well done in all aspects, can go up and down trough the pics multiple times and find always new details.

Thanks for sharing.

Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

Przemek your model looks great as usual.
You showed a small piece of 100 years of Polish aviation history.
Congratulations.
