The cost of war

Greetings all;

Here is a bit of fun with one of my older builds. The first of several I have planned that replicate airframes that were on display at Ilsington's Agricultural Hall in mid & late 1918.

"Mummy, did Daddy shoot that one down?"

Hello Stephen,
Superb work as usual.

I'm sure you have many spare propellers in your bits box, how about painting some up and hanging them from the walls of your Diorama?

Cheers for sharing,
Von Buck

Thumbs up Superb!

Hi Stephen,

Such a splendid idea. Your diorama work is superb. Amazing half-open DrI, is it 1/48?

Thanks for sharing.
All the best.

Greetings all;

Thanks for the kind words. As for the general layout here are 5 airframes on display in the ultimate version of the display. There were others in the general display even a Halb. CL.II and a bomber or two.

Thanks Kofoed! Yes it is a kit crash using the Aerobase brass PE stripdown 1/48 scale kit and the DML / Dragon kit.

As you can see there is not much but a few pieces against the back wall. I still have portions of two DR.I top wings I could use.

Let me also thank the Aerodrome moderator for deleting my accidental double post.
