Hello PM's !
I would like to show you my next model. This time it is a British Airco DH.2 a biplane "pusher" from the period of IWW.
"C1" No. 7851 belonged to the 32 Sqd RFC and his pilot was 2nd Lt. Ethelbert G.Stockwell Wagner. He was shot down and killed on 7th January 1917 in combat mission over city Beugny in France. He was the 9th victim a German pilot oberleutnant Erwin Boehme.

Own project based on Windsock Datafile 48 "Airco DH.2", archival photos, planes etc.
Material : carboard, natural silk, bamboo sticks, painted acrylic paints.
Regards,
Dick

Very beautiful job!
That's really a fine build. And even more impressive considering it is scratch-build.
Delightful to see.

You do such incredible work, I hope these are finding their way into a museum somewhere.

Beautiful job on a strange looking airplane. Hard to believe that they were actually flying these 100 years ago...

Another magnificent model, Dick. The DH.2 always seemed to my eye to be a good-looking airplane, and it was certainly historic. Yours is a real beauty.
