Lol, thanks Wattman. The music is from the recent Red Baron movie. I hope they do intend on making an Allied plane to go along with this one.

Been flying this a while. It is so cool looking.
Just had a crash today, nose into pavement. Slight imprint on nose cone and the only thing that happened is that "brick" seems to have shifted forward. Have to use the s bends to get the rudder and elevator centered.

the lozenge is a decal i made from downloads from a ww1 modeling site. i printed it on testors decal paper. the rib tapes are a separate decal.some people who are better with computers than i am are able to print the lozenge with the rib tape already on-it saves alot of work.applying all those little stripes sucks! you can google lozenge camouflage images and find plenty to work with.

Excellent Way! Thanks for the tip. I downloaded and printed the lozenge camo on white paper from the Aerodrome RC page and glued it to the fuse on my Tiggie/sorta Pfalz using white glue. Came out OK. I'll shoot you a picture tonight when I get home. Marty

waterslide decals work really great on these planes-to make them easier to apply i put 1 coat of future acrylic floor polish on the plane first. it dries pretty fast but i give it 24 hours before i apply decals.i do not think that this will add too much weight to the plane.

Go get paint.net it is a free program. You can use it to add rib strips and the crosses. Easy to use.

I visited a friend today that has one of these Albartos. I don't think I could see it flying very far from me it is so small. Going to have to show it to my wife. Maybe she will think it is so cute I need one.

actually you can see them from a pretty good distance. i'm going to check out paint.net. it's got to be easier to do lozenge than how i did it.

If the file you need to work with is a PDF file get PDF to JPG converter.ink. It will convert PDF files to other types of graphic files not just JPG. I convert most of my files to GIF or TIF.

cool. now get the waterslide decal paper and try that. make sure you seal it right after printing,i know testors has a spray on sealer, i don't know of any others yet. i'm going to try a wood decal-i downloaded pics of plywood-i want to see how they print up. a realistic looking plywood fuselage would look cool.

You can find it here: http://www.aerodromerc.com/

If you use a laser printer you do not have to seal it. Laser print is water proof. I print my large decals on sticker paper, smaller decals on bright white paper and glue on plane with stick glue.

I lucked out on getting a lazer printer. Wife's photo printer broke. Got a flyer in showing laser printer for $299. Looked on the net and found rebuilt ones for $150. I am guessing the printer cost less than an inkjet in the long run. I do not print often enough to keep the inkjet from drying and clogging so it seemed everytime I wanted to print I had to go buy new ink for the inkjet. I already had a BW lazer and had printed on it for years without a problem. I an now removing all my old inkjet stickers that have water spots and replacing them with laser printed ones.

Default Try on

If you Boys want to print me out some camo sheets on your lazer printers, I'd be glad to try them out! Marty
