New! (sort of.) Upgrade Set for 1:32 WNW Albatros D.V/ D.Va

I've combined the most popular Albatros D.V & D.Va bits into a single set. Save over $10 vs. buying separately.

Great idea Bo, this should prove popular.

what is the scale?

Hi Xan, sorry, should have specified -- these parts are 1:32 designed to work with the WNW kit.

Bo,
I just ordered the fuel tank. I was wondering if it would be practical to manufacture the control mechanisms for the Albatros DV ailerons? ( For those of us needing to convert a DVa) The control column would be nice but is probably manageable even to me :-)

PS: I tried once and failed miserably  :-[
PPS: Wasn't the original kit part molded at the wrong angle anyway?

First off, thanks, I hope you enjoy it, Rick.

Second: do you mean the fairings or the semi circular pulleys? Or both?

The fairings mostly.

Thanks BO. By the way once everyone knows the original kit fairings are at the wrong angle everyone will need some  8)

exactly -- that's the only reason I'm considering it. Otherwise I'd say just find a donor set to resin cast copy... (in fact I think I have the originals leftover & intact from my D.V untouched which you are welcome to)

I never got hold of alb v and was just going to post if someone had the parts that I could copy. I understand that you have promised your parts to another member, but if you wouldn't mind sending them my way first so I could at least see what parts I need to replicate, then I could forward them on to RAG III.  Otherwise it would be great if you were still considering making and selling the parts I'd buy them.

Unfortunately they are already in the mail to Rick!

There really isn't much to them and truth be told the kit parts are one of the more glaring inaccuracies in the kit as the fairings are demonstrably at the wrong angle in respect to the direction of flight, not to mention they should be open at the back. If you look here you can see how I fabricated replacements from sheet metal:
