This is the standard 1/72 scale Eduard kit. I scraped off the interior framing
and replaced it with stretched sprue. The plywood panels are Superscale decal
sheet, the control stick, seat belts, and MG jackets are PE robbed from other
kits. Steps, grab handles, compass mount and a few other items scratch built.

The kit is the old Revell Fokker EIII. The fuselage, wing and rudder were
reshaped in plan and profile to match the Datafile drawings, and all the
ribbing was sanded off and replaced with stretched sprue. The cowling was
thinned down and the engine reworked, and all metal areas were skinned with
foil from chewing gum wrappers, and embossed with dremel pointed eraser (by
hand). Replaced all struts with brass strip and rod. Mostly scratchbuilt
interior, Fotocut Spandau, and hand carved prop from laminated 1/64" ply.
Rigged with .004" monofilament. The markings are for a K.u.K. Marine Fokker
flown by Gottfried Banfield, illustrated in the AH Aces of WWI book.
All photos are by my brother, Steve King.
