The Humber Valley Hawks in Toronto hosted a "Bloody April" WWI combat contest yesterday. Lots of 1/8 scale fighters, mostly D5's and SE5A's. The arial ballet was spectacular!

My two Fokker Dr.1s are Flair kits. A good kit, moderately scale, not expensive. Comparable to the Balsa USA kit.

Hi!!
Here's Mine. A 1/3 scale BUSA Pup, with a Q50 for power. I've had it for 17 yrs now. Getting another paint job to freshen it up and I am getting rid of it this summer hopefully. Getting tired of messing with the rigging all the time. But it's been a great plane to get into the air!

Hi
This is my 1/4 scale Albatros DVa. Color scheme from WW1 D.V D.2065/17. Flown by Oblt. Richard Flashar and Ltn. Han Joachm von Hippel. Built from Jim Pepino plans. Has an OS 160FX for power. I am very happy with it. Easy to fly.

BENT, Great photo. Here in the Portland Oreon area in August there is the "Dawn Patrol" complete with a daybreak scramble...... Different events such as pylon races and other timed events make for an exciting two day event. Every thing fro 1/3 scale to mini Anitc (electric) have an event.......
