Joystick Lloyd CII and Aviatik BII
« on: June 01, 2015, 12:31:54 PM »
I have just got the Joystick Lloyd CII and Aviatik BII. I am thinking of painting them as the instructions say. has anyone built models of these kits before? I my want to do some alternate paint scheme and markings. Also does anyone know anything about the service careers of the aircraft; Lloyd CII 42.17 '2' and Aviatik BII 32.19
