Kempf's Fokker Triplane

Kit: DML (1:48)

This model depicts the mount of Lt. Fritz Kempf in Oct. 1917. The kit is the DML product, and the decals from AeroMaster's 'Fokker Triplane Collection' sheet replace the kit's contents. The prop is hand-carved, and the model is rigged with surgical wire. The upper wing translates as: 'Recognize me yet?'


von Budde's Fokker Triplane

Kit: DML (1:48)

This is the 1/48 scale kit of the Fokker Dr.1 by DML. It is dressed up in the markings of Jasta 15 C.O. Ltn. von Budde. The markings come from the AeroMaster 'Fokker Triplane Collection Pt.1'. The propeller is hand-carved and the model is rigged with surgical wire. For all intents and purposes, an out-of-box kit!


Fokker Dr.I

Kit: DML (1:48)

This model depicts a Fokker Dr.1 that was assigned to Jasta 2 in the Summer of 1918. The kit is the 1/48 DML issue, and the markings are from the AeroMaster 'Fokker Triplane Collection' sheet. The prop is hand-carved, the interplane struts are made of basswood, and the model is rigged with surgical wire. I admit that what appealed to me was the brilliant colors on this plane - very eye-catching!


Fokker Triplanes

Kit: Hawkeye (1:72)

Well... I have started building in teeny-scale and I have found that I like it!! These two Dr.Is are both in 1/72 scale. The streaked one is the neat little Hawkeye kit and MvR's plane is made from the Eduard kit. Both are excellent and I added little or nothing to them, save for the stitching on the underside of the Eduard kit which came from Archer. I have ordered 2 more of the Eduard Dr.Is as I have a Blue Rider sheet with Jasta 11 and 27 planes and I want to do some more - they are really fun! Finally, is there an Albatros lurking in one of these pics? You Betcha! Pics will follow once it's done!
