Truly lovely work, Rick and Justin!  The D.I and D.II are my favorite Albatros variants and these are my two favorite D.I schemes.
Cheers,
Bud

Both very nice!

RB, Prince Karl's D.I also had the Death's Head painted on the spinner! Must have been a crazy sight when the engine started up...

I guess it is open to debate, but photo 27 of DF #100 Albatros D.I/D.II depicts the plane before it was downed; it sure looks it has the death's head painted on the spinner to me... :o

Anyway, I didn't mean to open a can of worms, it's a lovely model...

Justin, A beautiful DI. I remember the build and your research regarding the spinner. As for the Argument, I thought the cowl was yellow  :o

No, no, the can is open! I can see what might be a deaths head in that picture, but it might be reflection too. Or it could be prior to, or after, the series of photos I have that show a plain spinner and the reduced upper wing cross fields. You must now assemble your acolytes, I will assemble mine,  then we argue forever!

 ;D ;D ;D  Thanks for the laugh!

Cheerrs,

Bob

I thought that Limiting this to the DI might be a Tad too restrictive so I have changed the title to include the Albatros DII: So lets see more of those great Albatri builds and build Logs!

Very nice models Rick and RB. Rick I especially like your wood painting and the very soft colors on the wings. Well done!

Kind regards
