Absolutely brilliant, Jacek!  I love this scheme.

Good grief! I don't know how I missed this thread, but I am completely blown away by the absolutely beautiful Albatros models!  You all have shown what can be done by an artist.  I am in awe of all your work.  Thank you for sharing your works and giving something to aspire to!

I'm sure most of you have seen this one, but for those that missed it here's my 1:72 Roden D.Va...







Not my best rigging effort, there are a couple of lines that are a bit slack, but they're awkward to get to and I don't want to risk melting the ones around them.....

I know it's only recently been posted but here's mine, just to lower the tone a little.









I had missed this thread completely, there are some beautiful models on display here.

It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.

    Most of you have seen this before; WNW DV in Jasta 15 (Kurt Monnington) colours. Not a spectacular colour scheme but my favourite Build to date. She got a "Silver" in class at the IPMS Western Canadian Regional in June, great confidence builder for certain however the Gold Winner left her far behind in the dust!






Now, if I could just get my camera speaking to my computer I could load some new photos.........
Cheers,
Lance

Very sharp, Lance!  ;D  I really like this scheme, even if it features "basic black."  It really draws the eyes to it. Gtreat job!

Bob

What a lovely collection, indeed.
So let me join this Albatros party with two of mine - you have certainly seen them before, too.

WNW 1/32, Hans Auer, Jasta 32b, built Jan 2013




Eduard 1/72, pilot unknown, Jasta 18, built July 2007

Prze,
   Both beautiful models but the Hans Auer bird is one of my favorites since joining in on the Forum. Wonderful detail, clean and crisp, and so obviously the product of an extremely talented Modeller. Thanks for bringing her back, she's an inspiration to do better every time I view her.
Cheers,
