Adding my Albie to the collection.

1/32 Roden Albatros D.III.  This is a factory fresh bird, so minimal weathering and bright colors.

Ken,
As I have said elsewhere your DIII is superbly detailed. The wood Grain Decal experiment worked Beautifully!

I figured it was time to add My build of the Roden 1/32nd scale Albatros DIII OAW, Jasta 4: Kurt Wusthoff . I did some minor corrections as follows:
1. I changed the interior slightly to represent a DIII vs A DI or DII as supplied in the kit
2. The   Oversized Radiator in the upper wing was sanded off and replaced with a WNW Teeves and Braun from the Albatros DV.
3. The Rudder was also oversized. I used Drawings of the OAW DIII and the WNW rudder to resize/ reshape the rudder
4. Details were added to the engine, valve springs from wire, and plug wires from stretched sprue.
