Thanks Rick!
   The Albatros D Series fighters are timeless, they never seem to lose their appeal. I think as a Modeler that if I were to stick to one subject this would be it. So many great schemes, one could go on forever!
Cheers,
Lance

  1/72 scale Eduard Albatros D.V.  I followed the wingnuts instructions for painting and marking so no upper wing chevron.  Overall this is a good kit although I do not understand how Eduard forgot the radiator pipes. I used fuse wire for that.  Had to hand paint the tail red outline as I had fits with  the decals.  Rigging with .006  Nitinol black oxide wire.  Added some detail to the engine using an unbuilt Roden kit as a guide. Some observations from this build were:
1. This was the first reasonable model I have completed in almost 46 years. This forum has been invaluable and I thank all who have answered my questions.
2. My goal is to improve my skills and  this forum is the best place to do just that.
3. Do not attempt any critical steps if you are tired from work. I can't tell you how many times I screwed something up or lost a part because  I was not at my best.  Also failure is easier to take when you are well rested.
4. There is some amazing talent here.  Keep posting everyone.

In response to Terri about the painting. The fuselage and tail were hand painted. The wings were sprayed with some touch up when needed.

    Very nice addition to this Thread Rick. I believe this topic more then any other illustrates the diverse modelling styles and particularly the wealth of talent we have in this group. A wonderful collection of masterfully completed models, and many more to come I am sure!

    Beautiful, all three Larry, and proves my point regarding the talent we have here! All three schemes are, I would say, high up on the difficulty scale and you've aced them all. Congratulations on three very fine models!
Cheers,
Lance
