The only ref I can find is in the WS anthology where he is quoted as saying it is about to be painted, then has been painted. I'll probably have to make a lot of assumptions, but fancy a different colour Fokker for a change. Can anybody help with anything else on this beast? I think there was a passing ref not too long ago, but would appreciate if anybody knows of any other source." Yes this should be an interesting model. Although I cannot help with additional primary references about this machine (I doubt whether there are any), I believe it (541/16) is among a batch of D.IIs on which Fokker began to implement the 3-color scheme but only on the horizontal flying surfaces, as suggested by the photographs in the DF. Serial 540/16, presumed to be the Kissenberth machine, is an example of this. So are 536, 543, 547, and 559. Concerning the first, the contemporary reports of Lagorgette in l'Aerophile suggest that the wing undersides were in pale sky blue. Features of field-applied additional camouflage at this time (late '16) appear to include the transformation of the Iron Cross style to a thinly outlined version (including the rudder), as on the Kissenberth machine, and application of paint to at least some areas of the forward metal components, probably more as an antiglare treatment than camo per se. The combination of these different elements should result in an attractive and unusual example, particularly if represented after a few flights as the paint below and aft of the cowl cheeks seems to have generally been subject to scouring by the exhaust gases, revealing the underlying metal and CDL surface. Good luck.

Unfortunately I put a hole in the top of the top wing with a heated razor blade (I really regret that night). Anyway, after doing a repare of the paint job and finishing the model (completely except no prop on yet) I tried to do a little more touch up last night. This made the situation much worse! (Rats!) Now I am concidering stripping off the paint of say 2 ribs lenghts (in the middle of the top of the upper wing) using Easy Off.

An just what were you doing with a heated razor blade in the middle of the night anyway? Remember, the Fifth Ammendment does apply because the list server's in New Hampshire. I would try to pop off the top wing - carefully - and then you have the whole thing at your mercy. Strip off the paint and decals - isopropyl alcohol will defintely do the trick for Future and acrylic paint. Or you can use windex. Then fill in the abrasion, sand off and re-paint. If you're short a couple of German corsses, I'll send them to you.

Message-ID: <47637867E285D5118FAE00B0D0D1C9760201FED2@TECOM03E> Bill, I recently ran in to a similar problem where I had to strip my entire kit. I used clear ammonia, stripped it down to bare plastic and started over. The thought of destroying all of your hard work is hard to overcome mentally, but once you're down to bare plastic and realize that almost anything is reparable things begin to look better. It worked great for me, and I actually applied the knowledge I learned the first go around to improve my second attempt. I'd offer crosses too, but all I have is 48 scale. Good luck, and hang in there, all is not lost!

I guess stripping all the paint off the top wing is the way to go, this is a big mental hurdle as Grep pointed out since this is my first WWI plane. Plus tearing off the wing is really going to be a mental hurdle if ever! :( My try at just fixing the small area obviously did not go right though. Yes Michael I could use some crosses if you happen to have some :). Do you have the ones for the top wing of MVR's 425? I have on the later type from the Roden kit. This would be a big help !!!! :) This is fustrating since the model came out very good except this. Michael, do you think I could keep the wing on? Or I guess this is not really practicle? Bill A. P.S. Incase anyone is wondering the heated razor blade was for getting the stretched sprue I used for rigging taught. Unfortunately if I had used a heated pin like I was supposed to, none of this would have happened!!! --- Michael Kendix wrote: > >From: bill anthony > >Hello everyone, > > I am at a major cross roads.

I don't think I'm interested. What I would really like is to have the videos or rent them, of the BBC series from the 1970s entitled "The Great War". I think that was a 20 something part series with each episode about 40 minutes. A superb piece of TV.

Message-ID: Bill struggles to retrieve the situation: "... do you think I could keep the wing on?" Because this is a Dr.I in 1/72, I would think it possible to just repair a section of the wing while it remains attached. If I understand the problem aright, there is a scar on the top wing which needs to be sanded out, and possibly filled. Why strip the paint? Mask around the damaged area, fill/sand, remove the masks and repaint that corner of the plane, replacing the decal if it is destroyed in the process. Hell, I do this all the time, since there always seems to be some late-project damage to some part or another. I WOULD like to know why a heated razor blade was involved, though.

Message-ID: Howdy! *This* is wierd because I sent that message a while back. At least a week! I was irritated when I wrote that message. Yes, I know he was shot down in an Albatros. What I meant to say was "Did you know he was shot down and killed in an Albatros?" What a rotten book. Later!
