OAW Rudder crosses
« on: April 26, 2012, 12:06:27 AM »
As I near completion of my WNW Albatros D.V, I'm looking to my next build, a Roden Albatros D.III. I'm interested in building Arntzen's OAW 2380/17 as illustrated in Osprey Albatros Aces of WWI, Part 2, plate 26 plus photo on page 73, and also in the Windsock Datafile Special on the D.III, plate 17. I want to stretch my modeling skills a bit and plan on painting my own markings as much as possible. One item that has me stumped is the comment in the Osprey book that the rudder had OAW style rudder crosses. Does anyone have drawings of the crosses I could use to make masking templates? Also, were those style crosses used on the wings also?

TIA
Frank
