Pfalz D.III

Kit: Roden (1:72)

Roden kit, I use 0.006-in smoke-colored invisible thread for rigging and control wires. Figures are white metal New Hope Design in the UK, sadly now out-of-production.

Also here are some photos of my 1/72 Eastern Express Pfalz D.XII. The fugure is another New Hope Design metal figure.

Fokker E-III 'Snowbird'

Kit: Revell (1:72)

Snow Bird was the name given to this Austro-Hungarian Fokker A.III (German designation E.III) number 3.52, flown by Oberleutnant Ludwig Hautzmayer. This aircraft was assigned to Fliegercompagnie 19 (Flik 19) at Haidenscafe airdrome on the Isonzo Front in February 1916.

It served with this squadron until it was in a collision with another A.III (3.44) in August 1916. Both pilots were attacking two Italian aircraft at the time and were able to crash-land their aircraft without serious injury to themselves. However, Snow Bird was reduced to Fokker fodder.

Overall, Snow Bird was credited with seven combat kills, five by Oberleutnant Hautzmayer. Most of its service duty was spent in strafing maneuvers in support of the Austro-Hungarian troops along the Italian Front,

The overall green was confirmed to aero historian Dr. Martin O'Connor by the revered Austrian naval pilot Gottfried Banfield, who had flown several Eindeckers in such paint schemes.

Sopwith Snipe

Kit: Toko (1:72)

Polly Scale paints, Sea Gray Medium, Dirty White, and USAAF Olive. Roundels are Almark, the balance I did with white trim film and Aeromaster codes. The pilot was done using parts from five Prieser Luftwaffe figures and just a tad of striping tape and Milli-Put. Primed in gray and brush painted with Polly Scale again.
