Adding my latest...

Hanriot HD.2 scratchbuild in 1/32




Your work on this kit is astonishing, it made my favourite WW1 plane even more favourite.

Congrats to all for this bunch of Hanriots, one of my favourite airplanes of WWI.
The scratchbuilt floatplane in 1/32 scale is really a fantastic work in every side. It's my favourite toghether with the "Blue bird" built by Andonio.
Some comments for the italians Hanriots:
 - the 7517 of Scaroni had red "76", not black;
 - the 6254 of Michetti was a silver french production aircraft;
 - the "four Aces" example built by Iancshippee was flown by unknown pilot of the 85a Squadriglia based in Valona, not Baracchini's mount;
 - same airplane is painted light khaki overall, in fact there was not italians Hd.1 with metallic nose and light khaki fuselage, despite the rear cover of Datafile 82 with Baracchini's mount;
 - the silver italians Hanriots were the ones delivered from France, the overall light khaki were the ones built by Macchi. The former, arrived in Italy, had only the undersurfaces of lower wings re-painted red/green, the Macchi ones had also undersurfaces of upper wing painted in that manner. This is one of the general rules, on internet you may find photos of 4048, a silver aircraft with cockades under the wings, maybe the first Hanriot sent to Macchi for copying under license.
Cheers,
Roberto

On the book "Gli assi dell’aviazione Italiana nella Grande Guerra - Gentili, Iozzi, Varriale" I had found profile n.38 showing an HD1 with the 4 aces, although it does not show the red white & green ribbon on the turtledeck,it is said to be Baracchini's mount. If I remember well (I have not the book here with me) there was also an all silver HD1 with the same markings.

Oh yes Antonio!
Because Baracchini had two Hd.1s marked with four aces, one silver (No.515) and one camouflaged inside 76a Squadriglia.
But Baracchini was not the only one that used four aces as personal insignia (Baracchini himself used a black shield before the aces).
This is the one proposed by Eduard (there is a mistake in the decal sheet with the red/black colors in one of the aces series), with tricolor ribbon and an unknown pilot. Ribbons on decks was used by most of the pilots in service with 85a in Albania.
Bye!
