Albatros DV lower fuselage nose panel question.
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:50:56 AM »
I have decided My next project will be an Albatros DV of Jasta 10 thanks to Larry providing the Decals needed! My question is regarding the underside nose panels. The serial number for the albatross in question is 1187 and has the head rest fitted. I know that early Albatros DV's had the lower nose panels running fore to aft vs across the fuselage. would this one have the early or later and ongoing panel lines?

hi!

Im going to build the 1177/17 form WnW Von Richtofen kit.

From previous posts it looks like it has the early style nose panels.
Any more info on this? I haven't ever noticed it.
I have to trough my Windosck pubblications, surely there's something there, but anything in the forum?

Thanks

Andrew

I have the windsock special on Albatros D1-DV/Va and there is no info. Perhaps in the Building the DV Special. 1177/17 would certainly have the early panels. I think Servus Bertl had info as he did a beautiful model of Hans Adams 1148/17. Let me know if you find drawings!
