Kit: Omega (1:72)
This is the Omega resin Fokker V23. I don't know much about this
as the instructions are mostly in Czechoslovakian. I believe it was a
prototype that never reached production in any quantity. The kit
provides two styles
of fuselage. One version allows for twin m/gs. I chose the unarmed
was a simple straight forward build.
The wings are "pinned" with .022 guitar string. The lozenge is
Scale upper and lower. I did substitute a set of spare Roden DVII
windscreen is scratched from clear acetate sheet.
It appears that several of the kit parts have been "cloned" from
Revell DVII kit.
Special thanks to Dan Hartz for this kit.
Kit: Roden (1:72)
The Roden Fokker DVI. Built OOB. AmericalGryphon 4 color lozenge and rib tapes
were used. Most of the kit decals were replaced with Superscale equivalents. Special
thanks to Dan Hart for the color profile.
This is the Roden Fokker
DVIII. Not a great kit, when compared to the Eduard. The fuselage on mine was
terribly warped, and required bracing inside to spread it apart so that the turtleback
would fit. Other than that the build was quite easy.
The kit was built OOB, and what rigging there was, was done with Ethicon stainless.
The lozenge is Eagle strike four color upper, and Rosemont four color lower. The
Roden national markings were replaced with decals from the spares box.
This is the Roden Fokker DVII (early model). Built OOB with lead foil seatbelts
added. Lozenge is Eagle Strike, and all other decals are Super Scale. Markings
represent Lt. Heldmann's plane. All rigging is Ethicon stainless steel. Special
thanks to Dave Rhuling for the streaked paint job lessons.
This is the Roden Fokker DVII (early) finished as Bruno Loerzer's plane. Built
OOB. Lead foil seatbelts added. Lozenge is Eagle strike, and rigging is Ethicon
The Roden Fokker DVI, built out of the box, and rigged with .005 Ethicon stainless.
The color scheme is off the plans, and represents an a/c of the Bavarian home
defense. Lozenge and ribtapes are Pegasus. National markings are Super Scale.
This is the Roden Fokker Dr1. My first attempt at "streaked" camo. Built OOB,
and rigged with Ethicon .005 stainless steel. All decals are from the kit except
the rudder cross which was too big. The handles I had to add on the side are also
.005 stainless. This is Neckles plane according to the instruction sheet. Thanks
to Richard Eaton for the inspiration.
Kit: Revell (1:28)
This is the Revell 1/28th kit of the Fokker Dr1. Built OOB with added seat belts and shoulder harness. All decals are from the kit. Streaking was accomplished using oil paint over CDL after several coats of Future.
Kit: Revell (1:72)
This is the ancient Revell Fokker E.III kit. Interior structure was added to simulate
the tubular metal construction. An instrument panel, rudder pedals, and control
column were scratch built. A Rosemont generic resin seat replaced the La-Z-boy
recliner provided in the kit. Seatbelts are flattened fly tying lead. The Squadron
In Action book was used as reference, with additional photos and information from
Karl Juelch at Wingnut International. Model was painted Floquil Coach Green, with
Floquil Insignia white panels. Decals are from the Americal Gryphon "Alte Eisen
Kreutz" sheet. Model is fully rigged with .005 stainless steel.
Kit: Eduard (1:72)
This is the Eduard Fokker EIII. Built OOB and rigged with Ethicon stainless. Lead
foil seatbelts were added to the interior. The national markings (Turkish) are
airbrushed. Model Master rust was used as the overall color, and Alclad II was
the choice for the metal. A graphite pencil was employed for the "squiggles"
on the cowling and fuselage sides. Not the easy build I've come to expect from
Kit: Cleveland Design (1:15)
I did not have print wood for this kit, so the entire model is scratch built.
No scale is mentioned on the 41 year old blueprints. Wing span is
This is my rendition of the EIII's engine. Entirely scratchbuilt out of
plastic tubing, copper wire, .035 plastic rod, and some washers.
The model is fully rigged with HSS. The windscreen is from Q-tip packaging.
Painted with Model Master and Floquil paints.
Kit: ICM (1:72)
This is the ICM Fokker E IV. Built OOB. Much of the rib detail was destroyed in
sanding out the seams in the fuselage. This was restored by adding evergreen strip
stock, and sanding most of it away. Decals are from the Americal Gryphon "Alte
Eisen Kreutz" (old iron cross) sheet. Model is fully rigged with .005 stainless
