I've only seen this machine fly once, and I will never forget it! Watching the landing gear work reminds me of a centipede!!

Thank you everyone!

Today was the first day with some sun, so here are photos of the finished airplane. For many years I've wanted to build one of these with the eagle--I was among the first to use Squadron Mail Order for my hobby supplies here in the U.S. and their logo has always been this eagle.

Step away for a time, then return and defeat the problem!

Thanks, friends--truly one of those kits that I like to sit down to now and then! The camouflage is done now, only have to paint the 02 in the wheelwells and I can spray on some gloss.

Masking is tedious, removing it and seeing the results will be wonderful!!

Very few parts, and the fit is excellent for an old kit. I started on this the other night and started painting just now--it is complete relaxation work!

Just needed some pure relaxation, so this simple beauty is introduced on my workbench.

Finally some sunshine!

This airplane represents that flown by Robert Olejnik of 1./JG3 right after moving from the Channel Coast to Barbarossa duty. He is supposed to have achieved the first victory during the invasion of the Soviet Union in this airplane. The decals are from an old sheet I saved years ago (Aeromaster, I think).

Perfect method for this--doped fabric surfaces have a color all their own.

Yes, the really early F0 and F1 versions had several tail failures! Those little added straps are in the PE fret for the Eduard F2 but I'm saving that fret for a later project so I used plastic strip.

Really, on the wing joints, later F2 versions probably had the beefed up wing skins so Eduard may be right for later machines.
