Albatros DV/DVa

by Mark W. Miller


Albatros DVa


HyperScale is proudly sponsored by Squadron




My intent with this project was to model the Albatros, inside and out, down to bolt level detail. 

Currently I am about 90% done. I still need to finish the internal structures in the tail, rudder and stab, and there's a long list of details which I skipped, but I have enough now to be able to render most of what I want.



The software I'm using is Microstation, which is a CAD application. I'm a technical Illustrator and I've used this software for about 15yrs now - the main reason I started this project is because in all that time I never got a chance to push the software and see what it's capable of. I must admit - It ha been very labor intensive task. But I decided at the beginning that I would spare no effort on this model - and I am pleased with the results so far.



I'm now generating a variety of color schemes so that I can try rendering some formation flying/dogfight scenes.



I started this project about a year ago in conjunction with the Great Albatros Cookup sponsored by the WWI modeling list. 



If you are interested the Cookup site has a many more of these renderings, as well as photos of "physical" models done by other members of the list. Cookup site - http://members.nbci.com/OTprojects/index.html
