Good day Gents. As my 1st WW1 model, Halberstadt, is finished, here is the cockpit and engine for the Pfalz Diiia. Taking what I learned from the last one, this one is going a bit smoother. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Mark,
Great job on the Pfalz cockpit and engine.
I particularly like the weathering on the engine - it looks as though it's been in the airframe for quite a while.
Are the guns 'Gaspatch' or did you roll the kit supplied photo-etch?
Keep em' coming,

Mike

MFair, it’s a great start! Which Jasta are you planning to paint it in?

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."

Fullofit, she will be Max Hitschler’s Pfalz of Jasta 18. Blue with red nose and 5 white stripes behind the fuselage. Thanks!
Mike, on the machine guns, that’s high praise coming from the master!

Thanks Carrick, she is a Wingnuts Wing Kit. 1/32 scale. Their kits are a far cry from the stuff I built as a kid.
