Great Eindeckers:  Really inspirational to see them, various degrees of weathering and schemes and all great builds.

@ Dave:  I too have a bunch of the Aurora kits and like you enjoy building them, accurate or not, it looks like an Eindecker and you did a great job on it.  Makes me want to pull one out of the stash and build it.  HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!

My second WW I build from the early 90s: Eduard's original 1/48 release in Udet's colors, which apparently should be a blue sash.  It didn't survive a move and will be replaced by the newer Eduard release.

And very nice it was too Drew. Such a shame it didn't survive the move. I had a similar problem when we moved to France and a large container of carefully packed models was dropped from the stationary lorry!

Lovely job, Drew.  Such a shame on it's fate. Will the replacement be the same
colour scheme?

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Thanks, Nigel and Ernie!

Yes, I'm working my way through Udet's machines, so now I have 2 or 3  Eindeckers to build.  It appears the latest view is that the fuselage sash was blue.

Shame she didn't survive the move, Drew.  She's a beauty, red sash or no.  One of the better early Eindeckers I've seen.
Cheers,
Bud

Thanks Bud and Rick! 

It's probably repairable - a wing and the landing gear broke - but all that rigging would have to be removed and redone.  Also, on the original Eduard release, the struts in front of the cockpit holding the upper rigging are photo etch, and they bent.  They would need replacement. Seems simpler to start over with the new release.

Excellent work on the Eindekker, Profa.  Very good paint and weathering.  Your
photography is very good as well.  I hope to see more of your models.

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Beautiful little Eindekker, Zoran!  I really need to build one of these.
Cheers,

All great builds but sadly I simply can't bring myself to build one of these - the Eindekker does absolutely nothing for me:(
