Just how far are you extending WW1? ???

Nice whif's but I think the wing loading might be getting a bit high by the last one, though. ;)

So, these later planes are all being flown by young girls & the odd pre-pubescent boys, then? :o

 I still wish to "steampunk" the Bristol Fighter, Sopwith Camel, and a parasol version of the Albatross D.V all in 1/32.

The Bristol Fighter, by the way, is my stand-out favourite aircraft of WW1, with the Sopwith Camel a short stone's-throw behind it.

Its actually a post war Bristol Tourer but one gets an idea of what a floatplane version of the Bristol Fighter might have looked like:
