Are you a modeler of WWI aircraft? Bob Kasprzak and the Military Heritage Chapter of the League of WWI Aviation want to help you. The chapter’s mission is to promote the study of WWI aviation history. Members from the Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio area meet quarterly to research and preserve WWI aviation history.
With the centennial of WWI upon us, there may be a greater interest from AMA model builders in building and flying biplanes. A majority of builders strive for the best replication of an aircraft’s original markings and colors. Chapter members are a resource for builders perfecting authentic WWI aircraft from all nations and all aircraft that participated in the Great War.
If interested, visit the Military Heritage Chapter’s Facebook page or visit the League of WWI Aviation Historians website for contact information.
