A 1917 film has been unearthed of Richthofen and his DR1 being prepared for flight and takeoff, including a sequence at the end where a hapless shot-down RFC pilot (and his bent machine) is seen surrounded by the Baron and his chums, including one H. Goering.

Fascinating. Back in the 70s we were able to locate and stand in the precise spot where he crashed. At the time, the adjacent brick factory and chimney were still there so we could match up the photos exactly..

Yes thank you Jon.  I can’ t help wondering if it was posed in a number of places like the RAF smiling crews in WWII although from what I have read and heard the “camaraderie” between  the RFC and the German Pilots was almost certainly genuine.

Intrigued by your post too Bill - do you have any photos?

Joining in on this one. Started cutting balsa on a 24" Guillows SE5 this afternoon.  Never had much success with biplanes, so this should be entertaining.

Here you are. The emaciated figure is me circa 1978 standing on the spot, which I recall was on the road between Bray and Corbie. A google search reveals lots of current photos, and the brickworks are still there. It was a spooky feeling.
There is now an information notice but there wasn't then. I was following the path taken by members of Cross and Cockade and they relayed a funny incident; asking an elderly man nearby if he knew where the crash site was, he threw his hands in the air in exasperation, shouting "Les Anglais, les Allemands, les Belgiques......l" then he threw them forward he shouted "la bas!!!". Clearly he had been asked the same thing beyond endurance - hence the current sign.
Then we went on to track down Albert Ball.

I would like to join also Don.
I've been wanting to do a  Nieuport 17 pnut.

So did you flip it over Crabby, or just make some new holes? Smiley

Hi Tony,

Looking forward to your build.  Will you use your craft cutter for the parts?

Got the wings done on the rumpler.
Boy it helps to  have all these laser cut ribs
when the spar notches fit like a glove.
Love that laser cutting.

Hi Don,
Yes no doubt. Still using it for sure.
I have the 3 Rozendaal sheets printed to arch D, along with a 3 view.
Lots of pictures and the FSI plan for references.
I also have this Nowlen Areo 11 kit with all sorts of neat little goodies to get some ideas. Grin

I see there are a lot of long ball hitter's, so I'll be in the back of the bus. Grin Cheesy Smiley Grin

Regards.

Tony

Hi Tony
You got company in the back of the bus if you don't mind crabs! Fixing that f%$# up, was gonna hurt no matter how so I drilled new holes, I won't know how accurate I was till the wings go on. I am going for the indoor version so I am shooting for um*....10 grams. Gonna use condenser paper dyed Rit tan. I have the Nowlen Nieuport 11, it came out heavy with all the goodies. Well, the road to you-know-where is lined with good intentions. Anyway, save me a seat in the back of the Greyhound!

Accurate enough.
Could have been worse.
Looks pretty light so far.
I bet you'll make it. Cool

Nice throw back pic Bill. Grin

24 hrs. of progress.  Yep, these laser cut kits just fall together.  I'm a little apprehensive about the landing gear connection though. No music wire to a bulkhead, just wire reinforced wooden gear legs glued to the bottom of the fuse.  Seems pretty sketchy to me...

I guess sometimes we tend to build for the crash instead of the flight!

Cabane struts made and test fit in place, all a friction fit at this point.
Tail laminations are drying now and are up next.

OK here is a shot of the completed
structures all pinned together.
Time to consider color scheme and
covering.

Wow, beautiful birds, gents!  I’m starting to feel awfully sophomoric with my fat a$$ed Guillows kit.  Hopefully, it’ll survive the inevitable crashes.  Reading through other threads today, I think I’ll make the gear knock off.  Got the lower wing flatted out tonight and started roughing down the 2x4 leading edges on the upper wing tonight. The thought of 103 sq. in. of wing area being supported only by (Cool 3/32”x 1/8” sticks has me a little concerned too.  Anyone got some tips on jigging up the wings besides, “Make sure everything is aligned before the cement dries.”  Grin

Abys---
I'm a firm believer in using 1/16 AL tube and 1/32 MW where
the cabaine and LG legs are mounted. Not only do they add
strength at the mounting joints but also allow fitup and disassy
so as not to be in the way when covering. I would consider
this method on something your size. Also wouldn't hurt if the
legs were from 1/32 ply.

Thank you Bill - I remember you back then.  I think then like many of us you ran after your model - not just strolled (or sent ones wife).

I hope you won't mind me saving a copy.
