Albatros D.II (Lee’s Hobbies)

This peanut Albatros D.II was built from a Lee’s Hobbies plan. It was a really simple, fun build. The scheme is that of my favorite pilot, Josef Jacobs (Wiki article here but more interesting info over at The Aerodrome Forum).  Tissue is all inkjet printed. Cockpit combing is crayola model magic. In the spirit of keeping it simple I made a 2D engine and radiators. This model and a dimescale Monocoupe 110 were in the backseat of my car when someone who shall remain nameless accidentally threw a bookbag on top of the model box. CRUSH!!! Oh well. Another opportunity to build. Someday I really need to do another Lee’s Albatros…
