Hi all,
       During world war 1 my grandfather flew firstly a Dh2 with Hawkers squadron over the somme battling against Von Immelmans flying circus. He later flew a DH5 claiming the first kill of it's type and finally ended up doing night missions in a camel. 7 kills confirmed. He survived the war but unfortunately was killed in the London Blitz.
Would love to find a suitable scale plan to build  a replica of one of his planes suitable for sloping. Rib type construction preferred. Perhaps 40" wingspan.
Picture shows my 23" rubber powered camel yet to add his numbers.
Any Ideas?
Thanks,
John.

I have the body of an 18 year old.........I keep it in the freezer

E-Flite are bringing out something very similar.

Sorry, not up on WWI stuff so not sure if it's exactly the same
