Instructions needed for Encore Albatros DII
« on: October 11, 2021, 08:58:19 AM »
I posted this in the spare parts board but though I would post it here also. For some reason I seem to have thrown out the instructions for my Encore Albatros DII in 1/32 scale. What I actually need is a copy of the page that shows the measurements to drill the holes for the N struts in the upper wing. If you can help it would be appreciated. Shoot me a PM or EMail. TIA,
RAGIII.

Hi Rick

I don't have this kit but given its parentage would the instructions for a Roden Albatros D.II have the same info?

If so, someone may have that kit and could help. I have the Albatros D.I and D.III only.

cheers

Roden did a DI and DIII. They don't have the info I need as the wings and or struts are different. I tried Scale Mates but no Joy. The Encore kit comes with directions to convert the DI wing from the pylon central strut to the N struts and that is what I need.

Rick, also on Scalemates there are no instructions uploaded. I guess it is this kit?
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/encore-models-32001-albatros-dii--239358

But I see, that 30 mates have it in stash. Should I asked some of them?
Have done this last week for a modeler in Germany (because he was not a member), I asked 3 mates and the PDF was uploaded within hours.
If you are a member there you can ask yourself, otherwise I can do it for you if nobody can help here.

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

Hey Rick
is this what you need? Unfortunately my crap new HP all-in-one scanner thingy is playing up (wish I'd stayed with Epson) so I can't scan at the moment but this pic hopefully gives you what you need.
If I can get the scanner working I can scan the whole booklet but let me know meanwhile if you need more details immediately.
Cheers
Sandy
