    Granpooba, as to the color of the aircraft, most (but certainly not all) builders try to recreate aircraft that inspire them in one way or another. Or they pick one that just looks good. But I have built some that were how I would have painted mine if I were flying back then. My DVII is a plane from Marine Jagdgruppe Flanders and is done in cub yellow. I have been told that cub yellow did not exist then so how could I use it on my plane? I say prove it did not exist in 1918. They most certainly did not call it "cub" yellow, but they had yellow, so who knows what the shade was?
    If its not a warbird, Its just a target.

    +2 on that! I'd like to see a Pfalz D-III (with D-IIIa conversions), too! If they made that available with the oddball spinner and backplate in 1/4 scale I'd buy four kits at minimum.

    My paint scheme came from some research I did on American squadrons flying in the Great War. My N-28 was from the 27th Aero Pursuit Squadron. My next build will be a BUSA 1/4 scale SE5A done in the 25th Aero Squadron markings.

    BUSA brothers I started this so we could have a central place for BUSA kits, a place to show pics and give/gain advice, now that it is underway my goal has been achieved.
    Since it is about Balsa USA I think an American should run it and someone who is knowledgeable about BUSA kits and scale in general.
    So I would like to nominate vertical grimmace to take #1 spot, what say you vertical?

    1/3 BUSA D-VII piloted by Baron Von Swety Hans retuning from a mission in which a Nieuport did not make it back....literally. A friend of mine had the 1/3 Nieuport and during our mock dogfight, was conducting evasive manuvers when something failed and it was lost. Totally unplanned. D-VII is an outstanding performer. ZDZ-80 power.

    That little sesquiplane, half wing on the bottom did have a tendency to fail!

    How about we send up some more of the squadron?

    It was not the Nieuport structure that failed, it was something else as it was intact when it spund down.

    Count me into the brotherhood. My first Balsa USA kit was a Nomad back in the 80's. Have built and flown countless other BUSA kits and currently have a 1/4 Pup sitting in my building room awaiting it's turn on the table.

    Hey There,
    I'm suscribed and certainly want to be part of this brotherhood. Started out with a Taube 40 (mod'd to Rumpler), currently have a Taube 90 which I will also modify, Stingray 120 - for a engine testbed, and a Citabria Pro.
    Would love a 1\4 D-VIII for my Honda GX31. I did skip ahead, so if #13 is unused, it's my lucky #.
