cool site for ww1 aircraft info
« on: March 06, 2013, 05:21:07 PM »
its in russian and english mixed sort of. you can goto the page and copy the url into google then translate it if it bugs you but you can read enuff of the aircraft type names to clumsily navigate. when you select a type it brings you to a new page with links to sites with info specifically on certain types. so instead of a shotgun approach doing a google search for a type of plane it is more like a sniper approach. you can find info as well as profiles and even drawings. just thought you guys might like it.some may already know and use it.

Thanks Scott for posting the link, it is very comprehensive and quite easy to follow. I have already found some interesting information on the Caudron G3, my next scratch build project.

One thing I did notice was the Snipe in Russian markings, the link shows the stars on the wings and the arrow on the tail as being red, the decals supplied with the kit by Wingnuts have them in black, I see there is also a serial number at the rear of the fuselage, there is no serial number with the kit, makes me wonder who is correct.

i saw what you mean about the snipe profile. i cant attest to the accuracy of the links. i just found this site a while back and have come to use it periodically when i'm trying to find info on a specific type. it has led me to some cool stuff. i spend alot of time poking around on the net looking for cool things like this. another site that has some really cool stuff is the arizona models site , there is a ref link which brings you to a bunch of drawings of craft and fittings.
