    Hi ,
     
    It`s been a while since I posted any thing . This is what was at my doorstep when I got home from Work .
     

     
     
    It`s in a nice big box with tons of parts . All the parts look great . I`ll probably do this one OOB . I first have to finish the Endecker EIII and Sopwith Tripe unless I weaken just looking at the box in the model room . By the way the bonus pilot and landing lights are awesome . It was well worth waiting a year for this kit . One of my favorate German Aircraft . Thanks ZM for doing a great job on the kit. Well worth the 212.oo dollars I spent.
     
    Hope to start this soon ,

    This is the kit I won on Swanny`s WW1 contest . This kit will be a little more of a challenge then the WNW`s kits. I`ll be detailing the engine and interior . There`s no decals for the instrument s on the dash board so some work will be done there . I`m going to start with the engine first . I will replace all of the round bumps on the engine block with Vector Cut nuts . the spark plugs will be made from rods and tubing . the push rods will get the same work done by replacing the oversized plastic with metal tubing .
     

     
    Before:
     

     

     
    After:
     

     
    Added the nuts and using .25mm rod as a guide for the push rods .
     

     
    More to come later .
     
    Thanks ,

    This weeks update .
     
    It`s been a while since I have done anything on the Fokker . I`m using Tamyia X-22 for my A/C . I did a 50/50 mix of white and German gray which I used as the base coat . Then taped up the wings and fuselage which got a coat of black sprayed over all the taped areas . Then the area between the taped area got a coat of German Gray.
     
    That`s as far as I got today . when dry the whole A/C will get light coats of the 50/50 mix of German gray. I`m hoping this will work,with some of the frame work showing through.

    Today`s update ,
     
     
    I went over the wings and fuselage with a 50/50 mix of white and German grey till I got the finish coat I liked .the fuselage got a few light coats of smoke to get the stained look that is seen on some of the photos of the real Fokker EIII. The decals went on with no problems .On the wings I used a mix of water and white glue before placing the large decals .
     
    Today I finish placing the bare metal foil on the front office of the fuselage . After the foil is on for a few days the next step is to finish the jeweling .
     

     

     

     
    Well that`s it for now ,

    I added the cables to the floor boards ,Not too happy with the results . I used wire which probably was not the best choice. Next time I`ll use mono ! Most wont be seen with the small cockpit ,

    It took a lot of trial and error ,but I think I got the hang of doing the metal work . The build is stalled till I get the PE set and HGW seatbelts from RollModels . I did finish the Germania prop and IMG 08 Spandau machine gun .

    Thanks Tim ,
     
    I did some work on the wood graining of the struts .I just have to add black paint to the brackets .
     

     
     
    The fuselage I ordered are a big improvement from the original . It`s 6mm longer . I added the bracing wire .
     

     
     
    Today I glued the fuselage together and glued the bottom wings to the fuselage . I still have to add the seat cushion and seat belts .

    Hi Everyone,
     
    The Fokker Scourge was the period of the ascendancy of the Fokker Eindecker monoplane fighter aircraft of the Imperial German Fliegertruppen.
     
    My daughter got me the WNW Fokker Eindecker for Christmas . So this is the next kit I`will be doing. I have the awesome Taurus engine and sparkplugs .Many thanks to Mr Lukasz. I`m hoping to start building next week .
     
     
    Thanks ,

    Well I decided to do Manfred Von Richthofen`s A/C I`m still waiting on Parts to arrive in the mail so All that I have done is paint and decal the tail . I still am not sure which turn buckles I want to use . The R&B productions or the GasPatch Models ? I would like some feed back on which turn buckles look the best .

    Thanks for the great comment s,
     
    I did not get much done this week . Still waiting on the HGW PE set and seat belts. I started to paint the prop and worked on the landing gear .
     
    To Ernie , I used some left over 1/48th HGW wood decals for the floor boards.

    Hi Dave , 
    Yes the spark plugs are easy to make with the tubing and the VectorCut nuts you can make lots of spark plugs in an evening . I still like the Taurus Models spark plugs ,but if they are hidden then you are better off making your own . As you can see I put the cowling together and not too much of the engine can be seen .
     

     
     
     
    I started work on the interior of the Sopwith by adding bracing wire and adding the pulley for the elevator control .
     

     
     
    The only addition to the IP is decals and clear rod to the pulsameter (lower left ) .
     

     
    The decals are from the 1/48th Airscale WW1 set . I always thought they where to big for 1/48th !
     
     
    Thanks ,

    Well after two days and 150 pieces later. I got the front end of the engine done . All I have to add is the exhaust and spark plug wires . Then the engine will get a wash .
