Hi Friends,

 

  Just completed another colourful German Biplane for my collection.

I love "Knights of the Sky" WW1 plane

 

Flown by Lt.Eugen Siempelkamp, Jasta 29, Gondecourt, France, July 1918

 The wings were covered with five-colour "Lozenge" Flugzeugstoff. Siempelkamp's personal markings
was the paper dragon as Eugen got several paper dragons from his father's Chinese business partners as
gift when he was a child.

Gorgeous build!

Hello

I just stummbled over this excellent Model.

Eugen Siempelkamp came from my hometown Krefeld. He survived WW1 

and raised a big company together with his brother Ewald. He scored a total

of 5 victories and lived up to the age of 94 !
