I bought these two kits in a bag with no instructions or decals at a show for fifty cents each. Today I built, painted, decalled and finished both in one day. The decals are from Blue Rider sheets covering the Russian Civil War 1917 to 1922. The Pup is from the 1st Soviet Fighter Aviotriad in 1919. The SPAD belonged to the Workers and Peasants Red Air Fleet In 1919-20. The SPAD is brush-painted Tamiya Flat Buff. The Pup is brush-painted Pollyscale Olive Drab(it looks close to PC.10 dope to me) over Tamiya Buff with Pollyscale Neutral Gray and Testors Silver. Retirement is good, when I can accomplish this much in a day. Adios, Larry.

Really different!

Larry:

     Whatta score!

      And you got to use the Blue Rider sheet!

       You just do not see these planes in them markings. And, they look not only different, but catchy, or something...

        You got any Nieuport ones, with the nekkid mermaid on the side? Or the wierd skeleton thing?

         I remember that because Eduard put out a series of their 1/48th Ni-11s and 17s with those early ever glorious and victorious red banner workers and peasants air fleet markings. I haven't seen one done, yet. Our local hobby emporium, now sadly defunct, had a bunch of them, and my companions in polystreine were snatching them up. Real different.

         Thanks for the foray into Russian Civil War markings.

         You done good, as usual.

Regards,

          Maybe now that the thrill is gone, I can score a couple.Hmmm. Like I need more loft insulation.

I have a Russian Civil War  Revell  Sopwith Triplane sitting on the bench waiting for decals and two Russian Civil War Revell Nieuport 17s started. I have some Toko, Roden, and Eastern Express Russian Civil War models built(White Russian, Red Army, & Ukraine). These are not retro. I have Revell  kits on hand for additional RCW builds(SPAD XIII, Sopwith Camel, Fokker D>VII, & SE.5a).

Adios, Larry.

And a DH-4, too, huhhuhhuh?

Seems to me one of the British squadrons involved had DH-4s, and at some point the victors had some modified version, with a bigger engine. Like our Liberty engined planes, they lasted a good long time in service, post war. Probably DH-9s, as well, at least initially.

Great idea for a theme collection, carrying on your postwar U.S. theme, as well, also the SPAD, Camel, SE-5, DVII in the 20s .

Got me thinking, thanks.

Have a good Thanksgiving and trip to Texas!
