this download is one of my favorites. This Albatros D.Va subject was shot at Canberra by member Cam Dyson (camdyson) of the site and contains many great detail shots you
will need to construct a scale model of this fascinating and rare aircraft.
This is a great subject
and a MUST for your walk-around collection.

Hope you all are have a great summer here in the Northern hemisphere, and I hope our fellow members "Down Under" are staying warm and getting some shop time in! Speaking of that. I thought you guys might find it interesting to see the top ten countries that frequent the site in what percentages over the last year...
Of course this is just the top ten and we get visited by over 28 countries every month showing RCSB is truly an international community. What is interesting about these numbers is last year Australia and the UK were in opposite positions.
I hope you all have a great July and Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans.
Here in the Southern US were are already well into flying season and it is heating up fast! A quick item I would like to bring up is we have a lot of visitors from up north and from Europe attend our events here in the south and there are a few tips to stay comfortable and safe if you will be traveling this way in the near future. While most of these seem common sense you would be surprised how many folks don't heed these tips (including me sometimes).
1. Make sure you are wearing adequate protection from the sun. Take a few minutes and apply some high SPF sunblock to help protect your skin from over exposure which might cause problems for you down the road.
2.A large brim hat with ventilated top while not "cool" to most folks is really the coolest headgear to protect you and to let your head disperse the heat it needs to from your body. Ball caps are TERRIBLE at this and allow your ears to get burned by the sun.
3. Wear loose light colored cotton/cotton blend clothing. This helps to reflect some of the heat from your body and keep you cool. While you may be making a fashion statement with that black t-shirt, all you are accomplishing is turning yourself into a heat-sink.
4. Drink plenty of water. Soda's don't do the trick here. You need good 'ole WATER to keep your body cool and operating properly. Every year someone I know that goes to these fly-ns / contest here in the south sufferers from some heat related problem.. Usually because they were not drinking enough water. So keep yourself hydrated!
5. Most importantly PACE YOURSELF. If you are in a new environment that you are not used to be sure and take your time and don't get in a rush. Now you know why we talk so slow down here.
Hope you all have a great flying season and hope to see some of you out at the fly-ins this year.
