Thompson" To: wwi@wwi-models.org Subject: RE: 4D Again Message-ID: I can't speak to a) b) or c), but B-M's D.VII was indeed inherited from Berthold, and was an early Fokker-built version. The easiest determination of early vs. late D.VII's is the presence or lack of the secondary side cowling panel. In fact it was a very early Fokker version, as it was originally delivered with the streaked Fokker green fuselage. The anthology 3-view has the upper surfaces of both wings in blue, the lower in lozenge fabric. Since it was Fokker-built, the rib tapes should be in lozenge fabric. The fuselage was standard Jasta 15 Prussian blue with a red nose, the demarcation line falling about at the midpoint of the Spandaus' cooling jackets. Berthold's aircraft had a large white stripe on the center section of the upper mainplane, encompassing the 5 center rib sections. Whether that was overpainted when it was handed over to B-M I don't know. -----Original Message----- From: wwi@wwi-models.org [mailto:wwi@wwi-models.org]On Behalf Of John & Allison Cyganowski Sent: Sunday, July 15, 2001 8:43 PM To: Multiple recipients of list Subject: 4D Again A few days ago we had a thread going about O. von Beaulieu-Marconnay's Fokker D.VII. I would be interested in finding out from those of you with the Fokker D.VII Anthology if any citations are given for the profile of v B-M's D.VII. I don't have the Anthology, but I do have a couple of other references: 1. PD Decal Sheet 48-016 Fokker D.VII 2. History of the First Day Bombarment Group, Thomas Miller, WWI Aero Publishers, Vol. 1., No2 (the bookshop not the magazine) The PD sheet calls out "Nose, undercarridge & centre section struts in yellow, rear fuselage & tailplane in blue. Rudder was white. Wings finished in early 4 colour lozenge camouflage with light blue rib tapes." The sheet cites the D.VII profile pub & reference #2 above as source material. The page cited for reference #2 is a simple line drawing with the same sort of color notes, as given by the PD sheet, but are unattributed. ------------------------------ Date: Sun, 15 Jul 2001 21:47:17 -0700 (PDT) From: Todd Hayes To: wwi@wwi-models.org Subject: VAMP Order Status Update Message-ID: <20010716044717.89083.qmail@web11105.mail.yahoo.com> Virtual Aviators, The VAMP order is in the "payment in processing" stage. The order will probably be sent to me in 7-10 days and takes 5-7 days to get to me. I'll let you know when it is on its way. As a surprise, one of the Nieuport 11 Profipacks will be included (mine all mine!) Now when will those new Spin kits be available?

This weekend I started my Roden Pfalz D.IIIa. Fortunately last week lots of messages about this model came to the list. I guess you are reading my thoughts. (before someone asks me, I haven't finished the Fokker yet because I'm waiting for the postman to bring me lozenge decals sent by D. - I decided not to paint the kit decals) Well, the interior is ready. Looks very pretty and the medical tweezers I bought (advice from my fianc閑, she's a nurse) were very useful. Also built the engine and painted it as the instructions said, with Gunmetal (Humbrol 53). Wonderful result! However, I almost broke the engine while trying to put it inside the other piece. Now I understand why you said it'd be better if Roden had made different fuselages for D.III and D.IIIa. Anyway, the engine survived and it's OK. That's it. Didn't have time to glue the fuselage halves because my house was invaded by lots of relatives :-)))) and my dad needed my white modeling table in a delicious barbecue he prepared yesterday. At least I had some time to advise my 15-y.o. cousin, who also builds models (but very slowly, and doesn't paint them), to give up that Stealth fighters and build biplanes.

One source you may not have considered is the Trophy and Award Shops in you vicinity. Many of them do not make their own bases. But they know who does.. If you have a Dremel, especially one of the newer ones there are tools and ways to use them to make bases. Larger wood working tools are better and faster of course. Get with me off list, and, I can tell you a bit more. Where to find less expensive tools as well as what to look for. My worst problem was, always, finding the wood I really wanted to use. Lee M.

Give some a call, I'm sure they'd be perfectly happy for you to come and take pieces away that would be large enough for bases, and you should be able to find good maple, cherry, and walnut pieces at least. Of course as Lee points out, to go this route you probably also need a router to do the edges. -----Original Message----- From: wwi@wwi-models.org [mailto:wwi@wwi-models.org]On Behalf Of Lee M.
