As-Von Richthofen, Voss, Udet by djinn-world As-Von Richthofen, Voss, Udet by djinn-world
Ok! last team of this Steampunk WWI project i'm trying to put together.

It's the German team.

The two Von Richthofen brothers, Manfred (the famous Red Baron, with the red cap) And his lil brother Lothar Von Richthofen (yellow cap)

I didn't change Manfred's face much, just his eyes, cause he really have natural peaceful and sweet eyes.... So I gave him a more determined expression.

There's also Werner Voß, one of Manfred's friends

I also kept the original pictures of Ernst Udet, since he's such a natural playboy. For those who know history a bit more: I know Ernst Udet ended up being an important officer in the Luftwaffe...too much responsabilities for an adventurous stunt pilot, too much pressure, and internal conflict lead him to drinking too much and finally, to shot himself in 1941....just another tragic story in a whole world of tragedies (I'm talking about the WWII here). But I think we have the historical maturity to distinguing the life of a very young pilot and the one of a disenchanted man who took the wrong decisions.

OH! And there's Moritz, Manfred's dog...yeah

Interesting. What is this project? I really want to see it.
Also, Another ace I'd recommend is Kurt Wolf. From what I've heard, he was a very quite guy.
And now that I look at it, I think the other teams are out gunned, since they both have less. I'll go ahead and vouch for Rene Fonck for France's team.

Thank you for the interest! It's a project I'de like to do someday...
! ^-^

Well all the pilots are kinda on the same team but for different interests, fighting a bigger evil, so that's why they're not the same number.

Thank you for your suggestion!

Kinda on the same team?
You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention.
I really hope you finish this project. or start it, or whatever. It sounds interesting, to say the least.

And triplanes and certain monoplanes. Can't forget those.
But keep me posted on this project. I love WWI aviation stuff, and with next year being the 100th anniversary of the war's start, it's a pretty good time for something like this.

I like historical persons a lot, all the famous and cool ones,
especially with cool uniforms^^ I think the best uniforms had
the French at the napoleonoc era and the Germans because of
the prussian uniforms and maybe also WW 2. ones, also when the
background is bad^^

These guys are the pride of the Reich, I give a hail to them, since I'm von Moltke and a relative of a Generalfeldmarschall from that era and other people of that surname (3 of them are called Helmuth) I find propper to recognize your work, which is magnificent and of historical value.

There's the Pour le mérite, a real sign of merit in the Reich.

Nice work, very wonderful execution of the piece, those uniforms are awesome as based on the photos.

Ahhhh t'es super FIN!!! tu étudies à Strasbourg? GOd je rêve d'y aller, je suis allée en France en 2006, mais j'ai plus fait nord-sud... et j'ai pas eu le temps d'y aller, je le regrette beaucoup!!! Mais j'irais un jour c'est sur!!! Quel est ton sujet préféré en histoire?

J'ai toujours su que j'étais fin, mais mon tour de taille n'arrête pas de me mentir ;{P

Strasbourg : j'y étudie et je vis non loin d'elle, à environ 30km. Et bien si un jour l'envie irrésistible t'oblige à claquer plein de sous pour passer par ma ville, fait-moi signe ;{)

Mon sujet préféré en Histoire... Houlà, le débat n'est guère encore tranché, mais j'ai une nette préférence pour la fin du XIXe - début du XXe siècle, histoire Alsacienne de 1871 à 1945 ce qui inclue trois guerres : la Guerre Franco-Allemande de 1870-71, la Première et la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Voilà, sinon j'aime également la période médiévale en général, mais je ne l'étudie pas (parce que je ne sais pas le latin -__- ) Voilà :{)

C'est sûr que je rapplique à Strasbourg un jour... je vais peut-être en Allemagne l'année prochaine donc, si ça se réalise, c'est sur que je vais faire un saut!

WOAH ;) Moi aussi c'est ma partie préféré fin XIX début XX! C'est tellement intéressant, dire qu'on fête bientôt les 100 ans de la 1ière guerre! C'est fou!

L'Allemagne, ça n'a l'air de rien mais ça reste quand même sacrément vaste ! Mais qui sait, si jamais tu arrives du coté du Bade-Wurtemberg (capitale, Stuttgart) il y a des chances, Strasbourg étant juste à coté de la frontière ;{)

J'approuve entièrement ^^ Hé oui, déjà 100 ans

Yeah.... It already been released in Germany...so I heard It's kind of a praise to the red baron, so if it's true, it won't be very accurate......and the red baron seems a bit.....emasculated

XD it would. Lothar was quite the party boy - sometimes he wouldn't be able to fly the next day because he was too hungover from partying.

He was the better pilot, but not the better shot, than his brother.

Too bad his marriage ended in divorce; but his son, Wolf-Manfred is still alive, but very very ill.

Yep, I love Lothi quite a bit, been tormenting him via my pencil for quite a few years now. :XD:

yeah I saw that...I thought I was the only girl interested in this period of time.... yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Lothar was a better pilot...Manfred was definitly more like a hunter!

Really.....he was that much of a party boy?????????? what are your sources....cause if it true it could change a few thing in my history :)

His son is still alive....you're kidding me....oh god he must be so old
