Well the rest of us might as well pack away our toys and go home. There's no way anyone could compete with these models Bo.

Just...magnificent, awesome and other words of adulation!

Thanks guys :)

If you haven't visited it yet, the link below is a really interesting thread; I guess a lot of the inspiration for the Aviattic kit came from here... sadly a few Photof#cket ransom notices but still quite a few really interesting pics of WWI planes being trailered and towed... mostly with this pattern trailer.

Nope, nor do I have any evidence that the Germans ever captured one. But I defy you to prove that it is implausible... :)

I don't intend even to try it  ;). It is German Buntfarbenanstrich? Didn't realize that. I had taken it for British camouflage:

That was the idea -- looked at a bunch of different sources for inspiration for the colors & patterns.  Seems plausible to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Agreed! It would have been interesting if there were photos of trailers in British camouflage rather than boring green overall. That was my main interest. But when e. g. in March 1918 the Germans captured lots of different Allied equippment, why shouldn't they have captured some Trailers and reused them as well...

Masterful! I mostly don't know what to write when you show your models. They are just perfect.
