Maybe I'm not remembering correctly, but it still looks a little wonky to me. I just can't get over the too big/ too long cowl. I know it's hard to get the old rotary engined planes to balance w/o...

I have used acrylic over tissue (but after dope) and it worked ok. Didn't slacken it, but surely didn't tighten it.

I don't know, I was planning on an oil based paint. Either Testors-like paints because there are lots of color options, or just regular old spray paint that's cheap.

I didn't plan on doing that, although you're right, that would likely be more scale. The only other real "conversion" I am mulling over is the rudder. The D.VI rudder is like the one of the Dr.I,...

I'm betting you saw the 1938 Errol Flynn version. That is the famous one. Apparently the 1930 is ok, more serious, but the acting is stilted like a lot of other early "talkies." I'd like to see...

Great movie, had the VHS growing up, would like to get it on DVD, not enough to pay $20 I guess. I think the movie made extensive use of the Thomas-Morse Scout for fighters.

I've started removing covering, lots of broken stuff in the wings. The problem with making a rib pattern is that in the top wing each rib is different. I'll figure something out though.
