Thanks - after getting the colour scheme matching the movie as best as I can, I started slowly weathering the surfaces. The planes in the movie were heavily weathered...

A small update on the last Red Baron DR1 (next the next to last paint scheme) - using the Aviatac decal picture asa paint guide. I finally received a 3D printed spent ammo box and mounted in place. :D

8-) Excellent work loving all your builds. Looks good as a Bi plane , did you see the programme I think it was Plane restoreration with the German NHS consultant that built a DR1 :?:

I did see that actually, cool show! I'm hoping to get all 3 DR1s finished (the Blue Max one last) - then I want to try. The Rickenbacker Spad and Roy Brown's Camel....

The hand carved aftermarket prop is a nice addition compared to the kit one below on the OOB early DR1 :)

Top wing and rigging done along with more weathering (the movie planes were grimey) - just the foot steps to mount and a base for it to complete :)
