  1. "Fred Jack, which „huge book“ do you refer to? " Almost certainly the book from Flying Machine Press, authored by Davilla and Soltan, "French Aircraft of the First World War."
  2. If you haven't tried the Nieuport 17 pair from CSM - they are on sale at 55 Euros (pre-VAT) here: https://www.copperstatemodels.com/page/store/WyIyIiwiW1wiMVwiXSJd
  3. Lukasz said they hope to bring it in at 99 Euros but they had not finalized that yet.
  4. The Baby also saw service with France, Italy and Norway.
  5. Enough! Where are the moderators when you need one?
  6. Has there been indication of release dates for the Nieuports and the star-strutter?
  7. "... Yes it’s quite unique - kind of chunky looking bird. " Even chunkier with the so-called "baby coffin" enclosed MG mount on the upper wing. There are a raft of schemes for the D.I, most of which have unpainted plywood fuselages with large geometric shapes or letters and CDL wings. Linke-Crawford (27 victories) was a well-known user of this aircraft as well as the Phonix D.I and Aviatik(Berg) D.I (WNW please add these to future releases.)
  8. LOL - I'll start saving now. I anticipate buying several of each!
  9. Hoping to put this sub-thread to rest, MVR flew at least seven F.I/Dr.I: F.I 102/17 September 1917 - Factory finish of Olive streaks over all upper sufaces and fuselage sides; "Fokker blue" base coat. Dr.I 127/17 Mid-March 1918 - Red cowling, struts and wheel disks. Olive streaked upper surfaces and fuselage sides over clear-doped linen (CDL.) Light blue undersurfaces. Dr.I 152/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, rear fuselage and tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks. Otherwise as 127/17. Dr.I 161/17 March 1918 - Red cowling, struts, tailplane, top of upper wing and wheel disks. Otherwise as 127/17. Dr.I 405/17 January 1918 - Red wheel disks. Otherwise as 127/17. Dr.I 425/17 March/April 1918 - Red overall. The above all had the earlier curved arm cross (Cross Pattee.) 425/17 was updated with the straight arm cross (Balkenkreuz) in late March/early April shortly before Richtofen's death. Dr.I 477/17 Early April 1918 - same scheme as 161/17 with Balkenkreuz as 425/17. Source: Research by R. Seissler in producing 60+ 1/33 scale card models from c 2006-2013 at www.paperwarbirds.net (now inactive.)
  10. I apologize for asking the obvious but do you have "PayPal Balance" selected as your default payment method?
  11. I encountered this a couple months ago and was told by WNW that you can pay with your PayPal balance but not with a bank transfer. In other words, move money to your PayPal account before ordering, then do the ordering process. It worked fine for me.
  12. So - 32068 = F.I/Dr.I (early) and 32069 = Dr.I(late) Pheon is planning about 90 Dr.I decal sets so I need to start saving NOW (oh, and live long enough to buy/build them all - I'm only 76 so no problem...)
