Hasegawa`s Fokker Triplane in 1:8.
I will change some materials of this kit. Enjoy
The Propeller is made of plastic or resin and is painted like wood.
I will strip down the right half, the left will be painted and built with fabric.
is a very fine Kit of the french manufacterer JMGT. It is of resin with metal
parts and so fine, that I used no other parts, just out of the box. It is painted
scratchbuild, only the engine was produced by Hi-Tech
Hansa-Brandenburg KDW. - 95% scratchbuilt
This is a one-seater fighter plane with floats. 58 were delivered
to the German navy starting the spring 1916. Three engines were used: 150 HP Benz
and the 160 HP Mercedes and Maybach.
For construction, I used only the fuselage-halves of an unknown manufacturer and
a part of the exhaust pipes. The images show how I did the floats and the wings.
The wingspan of the model is 19, 4 cm. The materials were Balsa, plastic 0.3 mm
and 0.5 mm, for the cockpit veneer 0.7 mm. and the struts were made of the finished
product of RAI-RO.

Hansa Brandenburg W 29
Bulit from a 1:48 scale FLASHBACK kit.
The model depicts the aircraft
of "Fiede" Friedrich Christiansen, squadron leader of Seefliegerstation
Zeebrügge, after war the captain of the DO X Flugboot. The figure is a Hecker
& Goros, for representing the water I needed a finished product for want of
modelling it by myself at that time.
AEG G IV from HI-TECH with own colour.
I painted it in 4 colour-lozenge
overall by hand. I thought about "wethering" this lozenge and found
a way. Do it with a potato and dry painting!!
I think, it is a way too for wethering the decals of lozenge. The expression is
good! You find a complete description in the
http://www.mbc-koblenz.de. Sorry, it is
in German! My English is too bad.
Eduard Strip down kit in 1:72 scale.
A beautiful eduard kit. this kits make an enormes impression to visitors, but
there is only less work to complete them. This fokker was finished over all in
two days! It exists only from some photoeched and several plastik parts.
First of all I painted
all "wooden" parts in brown and all "steel tubes" in silver gray, the motor
cowling in aluminium. Second day, all parts were glued together (I used contact
glue Pattex). Finish!
On our last event of MBC
Koblenz, it was the star and became best of show.
There were many other models
on this event, which costs many hours of "hard" work. In fact, this fokker schooted
them all down, my handley-page 0/400 scratchbuild too.
This is a hand-painted eduard kit in 1:48. The Fokker of a Marinefeldjasta, plane
of Lt. Sachsenberg, leader of Marinefeldjagdgeschwader 1. Planes fuselages were
yellow and black. Eduard has this plane in 1:72 scale with the decals for the
checkerboard-fuselage in a fine kit. It was hard work, doing it by hand and needed
some glasses of red wine acting a strait line.....
Flashback-Kit. Pilot`s are Hecker Goros.
1:48 scratchbuild. Only the pilot figure is Hecker & Goros. I friend,member
of the www.mbc.koblenz as I am, made the photos. There are more photos on the
webside of the club.
