Presenting my 2nd Wingnut Wings build Albatros D.Va (OAW) in the markings Hans von Gossell of Jasta 71. Completed their Fokker DVII (Alb) a few months ago & had to have a go at the Albatros next.
Learned a few things I will do differently on my next Albatros build concerning decals & rigging. Will also use the white metal landing gear struts on the next one, as the kits L/G is very wobbly.

For the build I used the following aftermarket items;
Shapeway  fuel tank & fuel valve
Taurus spark plugs, valves & lifter arms
Aviattic lozenge & Uschi woodgrain decals
Gaspatch Spandau machine guns
HGW seat belts

​Barracuda Cast Intake Manifold

Rigging isn't perfect, my first try @ rigging a biplane. Used transparent thread colored with a silver sharpie for the rigging & micro brass tubing @ the ends to simulate the turnbuckles.
Added to the cockpit & engine, fuel, air, vacuum lines, spark plug wiring, interrupter cables, etc. Scratch built the interrupter mechanism on the upper rear of the engine, but can't be seen when completed, so I'm guessing this may be why WNW didn't mold it in the first place.
Weathered slightly using oil paints, pastels & washes. Very little done in this area.
Comments & suggestions are welcome, as I'm still a newbie with the WW1 planes.
Thanks for looking,
Larry

Thanks for all of the nice comments!

My next build will be something I am more familiar with before I tackle another biplane; Hasegawa Fw-190 D9.

 

Kev, would be honored to have published, last name is Trout.

Larry,

You built this like a pro! Amazing attention to detail, and you make all of the decals look like the real thing. Serious respect.

Cheers, Tom

Beautifully done and the scheme is uber cool!
Out of curiosity which of the uschi decals did you use? The ronny bar edition? Any chance you might have the item ref at hand?
Thanks again for sharing!
