Blood Order 1917: The Blood Order of 1917  issued to all Kitmaker participants that complete the build of  two WWI aviation kits associating them with two known combatants of an air to air dogfight in April 1917.  Note the rules and regs.  One should be from the Allied powers and one from the Central powers.

The Blood Order 1917  has a blood red field similar to the British Victoria Cross, but in this case noting the terrible cost of aircrews in April 1917.   There is a white panel centrally located  noting the pure intentions of these combatants to serve their countries.  The German Iron Cross and British Cockade entwined, pins the middle of the award noting two of the combatants of this era.
Operation Incoming: This ribbon signifies that bearer has completed the Incoming Campaign with honor and distinction.
