    They actually destroyed 3 in the making of the movie unfortunately, a great film but such a waste. Although 20 years or so after the war had ended they probably never realised just how rare those airframes would eventually become!

    I've not received the fabric yet but this is a nice photo of the Dr.1 it came from.

    I didn't know that they have an SE5a as well!

    I saw "The Blue Max" when it originally came out in the theaters.

    Speaking of WWI airplane fabrics; Manfred von Richhofen collected an extensive collection of downed airplane fabric numbers from many of the airplanes, he shot down (along with captured machine guns etc).
