    Sorry if this has already been asked/covered...

    After watching the movie, I'm wondering if there are models available of the planes shown? I would imagine the Fokker Triwing, but how about the others?

    Thanks! :-D

    ekuth...........

    Really depends on what detail level you want............... DeWaynes got some............both 1/33 and 1/50 all good!

    Fiddler's Green has an entire CD on World War I aircraft...........ummm inexpensive!

    Paperwarbirds has some really DETAILED planes...............ummmm well worth the price!

    Can not go wrong with either.

    I've seen the dam buster movie a few times on late night tv a few times. Very good. Saw Waldo Pepper years ago. Another great one.

    Detail level?

    Have you seen the stuff I build? The more detailed, the better. Now, for the aircraft ignorant, can you tell me exactly which planes are featured in the movie? That way I'll know what to look for.

    Okay, after browsing around, I took the plunge and ordered the Fitter's model of the Spad VII-C-1 in 1:33 scale from DeWayne's site...

    I figured it would be a good place to start.

    Here's hoping I can make the transition from rockets/spacecraft to aircraft... :twisted:

    Ekuth,

    The SPAD is a great plane to build :D but as for your 1st WW1 bird may I suggest a Neiuport 17, Siemens Shuckert, or perhaps a PFALZ D.III as they have a much easier strut and wing rigging set up. The SPAD has a lot of struts and a very complex rigging pattern.

    It's great to see another WW1 builder in the making :D

    The Bad guys are flying the Fokker Dr. I. Try Sero Paper Warbirds at http://www.paperwarbirds.net for a large selection of colors. The good guys were flying the Nieuport 17. You can buy several different Nieuport 17's from DCM at http://www.paperwarbirds.com. They also have a couple of Dr.I's there as well. Dewayne's site has a Nieuport 23 which was an improved version of the 17 in Russian markings. The 2 seater that the hero used to rescue the girl was a Sopwith 1-1/2 Strutter. I don't know if one of those is available anywhere.
