Holy cow, second build completed in under a week! This is Jasta 5's Pfalz D.IIIa (Wingnut kit), with Pheon decals and Gaspatch Spandaus, otherwise OOB. The build was put on hold in June/July to focus entirely on the Ships Camel that I finished last weekend.

 

The red is a mixture of Mr. Colour paints made to match the red of the Pheon decals, and the Jasta 5 green and the Pfalz silver grey are Drooling Bulldog lacquers.

Beautiful Mike! I love this. The red looks right on and in scale.

Cheers, Tom

Thant's  an pretty aeroplane :), evertime somebody mentions Jasta five, I picture the line-ups of aeroplanes in bizarre colour schemes just waiting to be strifed by loaded P-47.:0 Anyway, nice build Mike.

Cheers

M.

Holy Moly that's beautiful!! I can't believe you can build to that level in a week. My Pfalz took months and isn't half as good, your a master builder!

Thanks everyone!
The kit was not built within a week, just completed a few days after the Camel :-) I had been working on it throughout May and June along with the red/white Jasta 18 Pfalz which is also nearly ready to rig. Think I'll try to finish the DH9 next and then the Pfalz. Shelf of doom is shrinking!

Yes sir, this will be at the meeting next week. I'll hold off on bringing in the Camel until I have the whole display finished.

Wonderful colors. I'm feeling drawn back to these planes, stop it, stop it, stop it.
