Title: Completed scratch built Albatros Al 101

Hi to all
as anticipated in the "In progress model" I've now completed my scratch building exercise on the Albatros Al 101, a german aircraft that did its maiden flight in 1930, but was still in use by Luftwaffe schools (always starving of aircraft) well during WWII. My example was referrred as belonging to FFS(A/B)123 at Zagreb.
Indeed being a sctach built has not to be compared with the beautiful models built from latest kits and enriched with extra features resin/photo etched kits.
I hope you will appreciate

What a cute little thing, I love the tail arrangement. Nice job on an original subject.

That is impressive, having just read the 'in-progress' thread showing how you got there. Looks like a lot of work, but all the more rewarding for it I expect.

Giampiero...hats off to you ...excellent. Anyone that can scratch an entore model is way down the road ahead of me. Well done. Bravo!!

Very nice. I'd never heard of this aircraft before. Finding research must have been hard.

thanks for the appreciations.
The searching for info has been very much facilitated by the members of the LEMB (Luftwaffe Experten Message Board) that you may find herehttp://www.luftwaffe-experten.org/forums/
I shall thank them for all pictures, 3 views and general info's made available.
PS If you are interested on above site, you must register first to have full access to the information. It is really a fountain of pictures and data about German aviation of the 30's and the 40's

That may be so, but it is a lovely little model, & must be really satisfying when you've done it all yourself!
