The paint scheme of Wingnut Wings’ Albatros D.V “is the most difficult I’ve faced in more than 57 years of model building,” Harry says. “After eight tries, I finally got the ‘corkscrew’ pattern acceptable, but it’s still not quite right. Otherwise, this kit was a joy to build, with remarkable fit, engineering, and overall quality. The rigging was done with EZ Line.”
Well done Harry. Looks perfect to me. What a great job

Looks like a great job Harry. I have this kit and plan to build it with the strips like you did. It does look like a challenge but a lot of fun also. Wingnut Wings makes some great kits.
That's some fine work. Paint job is fabulous! In 1/32 scale that must be a good sized model. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Love the paint job - like a candy-coated winged bullet. I think almost any Allied pilot would have soiled themselves to suddenly have this thing appear on their "six".
Hello HH from Bridgewater! The Albatros looks excellent, a real eye catcher. Look up our club CNSM - Central Nova Scotia Modelers. We are based in Truro and our 2014 contest is scedualed for Sept. 20.
Wow! That's all I can think of to say - WOW!!
