Hey Zac - I have the original set of floats that I replaced as I wasn't super happy with them... not sure you'd want them though...! A set of Hanriot floats may see you through  ;)


I certainly wouldn't say no... ;D

Thanks Paul, Matz, and Stuart!

Hi Brad,this is soo gorgious.Funny coincidence,but not long ago I wondered what to do with all the leftovers of my floatplane builds,and had quite the same idea of a DrI on floats.Happy you did it first !
If I was a nitpicker I'd say that this little Tripe ,according to the Marinenummer 8 or 708 must have been a Rumpler Taube Floatplane or an LFG built Sablatnig SF2..
anyway,if you need a place for display,there will always be some space left on my Borkum -Dio for this little beauty  ;) ;) ;)
cheers
Matz

In all honesty Matz, I totally made up the serial number - the only thing I did was make sure I avoided the serial range of the standard Dr1s, and added a "W" for the heck of it. But that's why I love this forum, you guys are a wealth of knowledge!  ;D ;D

Cheers!

So, two thirds of the wings are now on :) Thanks to Eduard's engineering, these posed no real problems, save the area around the cockpit coaming, which didn't really want to sit down of its own accord.




Hopefully the single piece struts will make mounting the top wing a little easier.

(these photos are great at showing areas that I need to go back and fix...  :-\)

Cheers,

BC

I like this small model extraordinarily well.
It looks absolutely convincing.
Excellent work, Brad.
