    Albatros B1

    Wow... where does your material (drawings, colours ...) come from? Hard stuff to find out. i like those designs much more than those coming just after, i find the serie D onwards somewhat modern too much. And even the C serie, am I old fashionned? The past few days, I was just looking for the B2, perhaps i'll order the Orlik model. I was expecting the thread about was to be continued.

    Prudence Msr. Renaud; le kit reduit Orlik est le B1; pas l'avion B2! Ce n'est pas la meme chose, mais il vaut le coup! Je suis tres content!

    Albatros B1

    The B2 doen't differ very much from the B1, I don't care for such a difference, both compare favourably in my opinion to the planes coming after in terms of old flavour.
    I have a photo of my grand uncle in his cockpit, he was flying a Morane and was shot down in Verdun, in the Summer 1916... I hope he was not facing an Albatros. These B series are hopefully far from looking to warbirds.

    Well, but where are those French speaking people here coming from???????

    But the cooling system is vastly different. The B1 features a side-mounted radiator while the B2 has the ghastly looking thing mounted above and to the rear of the engine. I'll bet it was hot inside that cockpit!
