1/48 Pfalz D-VIII
The Pfalz D-VIII is probably my favorite plane of World War One. It’s stubby fuselage was a radical departure from the elegant shark like fighters that the Pfalz factory produced before.
This is the Tom’s Modelworks resin kit. Most of the cockpit was scratch built, as was the propeller. I added ribs to the cowling, sanded out an exhaust channel under the engine and used brass wire for the struts. Crosses are from Americal Gryphon, serial numbers were done in pen and ink on clear decal film and lozenge was from Eagle Strike. Markings are for Ludwig Beckmann of Jasta 56.
