10" of snow so wet I am lucky my trees have any branches left at all. That's the downside. The up side is the Merc engine for the Albatros is ready for the fuselage. Now all I need to so is start the fuselage.

Beautiful work Marc! Awesome way to spend a snowy day! We got banged by about 12 inches of the wet stuff too...half gone since the sun was out the past two days. Thinking another one I on our doorstep for next week!
First, apologies for the late acknowledgements to those that took the time to comment. Thanks so much.
The molasses has started to flow again and there is forward motion. I am keeping the weathering light on this one. Hand carved prop. Hardest part is the curve around the hub but with a spinner ya only need to get the blades right. I know it’s only 5 layers cuz I can’t find real wood thin enough to go 7. A close p of the rigging turnbuckles and shields.
My all time favorite WWI airframe! The paint scheme is just outstanding to say the least. I'd love to build one someday, but the rigging just scares me to death! Assuming the paint scheme is real (looks real), who flew it? gary
