Fokker Dr.I - 1/72nd Revell kit. Used the treatise Steve Hustad wrote on correcting
the Revell kit. This was my first try at painting the famous Fokker streaked camouflage
and for it I used Tamya acrylic Olive Drab over a base coat of my cheap household
paint CDL. After the streaking was done I went again over it with a needle since
some streaks came out too wide and after this I used a sepia pastel pencil to
do some more streaking. I believe next time I'll try to do it only with the pastel
pencil or even try water colour pencils. A coat of future applied with a pencil
blended the thing together (the Future picked up some of the pastel dust and created
an even colouring which I find quite nice). The yellow is once again cheap supermarket
paint out of the bottle, and the underside turquoise is by Extracolor. Since I
deleted all traces of ribs on the underside I simulated rib tapes with a turquoise
water colour pencil, buffing the pencil lines with a stiff bristle brush until
I chieved a nice subdued effect. Decals are by Blue Rider, and Spandau's by duard.
Finished as Ltn. Rudolf Klimke's machine from Jasta 27, 1918.
