Richthofens' Dr1

Kit: DML (1:48)

This is the 1/48th DML Fokker Dr1. It is built primarily OOB,with the exception of the Tail plane{from the Blue Max Kit}. Elevators drooped for more candid appearance. This build represents 425/17, after the first markings change. Red is Floquil British Crimson darkened with RR Boxcar red. This is a rebuild and repaint of a failed attempt. I therefore need to repaint exposed engine and landing gear. MGs are currently just placed in position thus a little skewed. I know, another RED Triplane! But necessary for a JG1 collection.
