Hi,
I am looking for plans for a stick and tissue WW1 plane. I have built a few guillows models, the sopwith camel, DR1, and SE5a. Now I would like to build a Albatross or a Fokker.... or a seimens?
Just something a bit different and around 24 inches wingspan, and for display only.... no flying:D
Any help would be great.:)

Hi Reuben,

You might try looking through the links in this thread. There are a number of free plans in it.

If you're looking for a kit, you can try these. They're right in that size, stamped not cut parts.

Real scale drawings can be had here as well

Hey Pd1,
Thats a nice looking Albatross:D I have sent them an email regarding freight as I live in New Zealand.
I also found some plans on the net and have downloaded them and had them printed off already:D a Fokker D8, Bristol Fighter F2B, and a Bristol Bulldog.
They should keep me busy untill the Albatross arrives.
Thanks Reuben

There are some good small WWI Peter Rake laser cut short kits available at www.manzanolaser.com (http://www.manzanolaser.com) for less than $30 each in U.S. funds. Steve

I've done lozenge on silkspan. I used a printer to apply it. If you're interested in that route, let me know....
