Thanks Colin.
I'm not sure they flew together, but the latest theory is that Manfred was shot down by a lucky shot from an infantryman.

No you are both wrong. I'm sure you have to make the noise of a really slow machine gun, the sort were you can actually count the rounds. Just try it in your head - it works.

But yes, what a bright little thing that is. Nice job.

Fantastic work by any standards, Ian, but especially when you bear in mind this kit was almost contemporary with the original Dr.1! I love the colour scheme you've chosen, and the 'wooden' parts (prop, seat, skids) look great.
