Albatros d. V
Albatros build complete
Paul Baumer, Jasta 5 , July 1917.
Died July 1927.
I had to build this one as he like me was a dentist.
Found the build not as good as some of the more complex 2 seaters…that top wing was a [email protected][email protected]! Yes, I’d straightened it etc. There was already a slight dihedral with the bottom wing in place. I reckon the forward cabane struts are a tad too long or the tabs too thick?. Something is out around there…from wing tip to wing tip the V struts and cabane struts were not on a straight line. On to the next one a lot wiser
