Scramble, Scramble, Scramble!

Now that we are all safely in our cockpits it appears that we are missing a pilot. I happen to know where he is.

fokD8Pilot2He looks a little drunk, doesn’t he. Well, he is and he’s our new pilot. He lacks hands and a head but he’s coming right along. He will become Leutnant Theo Osterkamp, a highly decorated WW1 Luftwaffe ace with 32 victories. He was quite the badass and went on later to destroy 6 enemy aircraft during WW2. Very few pilots could claim victories in both world wars.

I am building his mount as well: the Fokker DVIII (or D8). I made templates this time so it can be reproduced more easily in the future.
