Fantastic work. Where do you purchase the pilots?

Cheers Mooney

They are made by a fella called Dave Banks here in the UK.(No mean scale modeller himself)

I bought a bunch a few years back. Prices then ranged from £2 - £3 each although they may be a bit more now. Scales range from 1:35 to 1:8 with a couple of 'fun' pilots too. All the usual periods are covered and they are highly recommended Cool (You will often see them gracing the cockpits of well known scale models... Pete Illiffe is a fan)

Weights are between 1 and 8gms (for the smallest and largest) although if you are really keen you can easily hollow them out... Roll Eyes

Paul,
Did you ever finish this kit?  Sure looks like it would be a show-stopper!

Hi Dave,
How strange are coincidences . .  Undecided Earlier today I was looking through my boxes of bones thinking this Pfalz is almost done I should get my ar** into gear and finish it off.

Then I was looking at the Aero-werkes website (just before logging on here) for the first time in ages and ages and saw my Dr1 in glowing technicolour  Grin (Fame at last, eh?) Wink

Anyway I will dig it out and try and get it finished just for you

Greetings, Daddy-O,
Stryker here with a few complements and comments.  Firstly, Love the build article.  Great job for what I'm seeing of it.  2ndly, did You use the 1917-8  "Flight" articles on the Pfalz D-3 a/c?  I myself would like to own a full size reproduction that flies.  The biggest problem to date is finding an "upright" Straight 6 engine.  Not many of those that are usable for a/c.
   Since my family about 150 years ago came from the part of Germany that Pfalz was making their a/c from, I'd like to build 1st, a cardstock model of the D-3 in the proper Jasta markings, Then, using a modified Comet, make a balsa model.  After that, if I can find an engine a full size, who knows?
  Keep up the GREAT work, Daddy-O,

Cheers, Stryker

That Pfalz is from the old DPCM line and had an 18" wingspan. It has since been
replaced with a 16" version ( bones below ).  Although smaller, it has proved to be
a good flyer. Due to its size, note the profile engine.
