WNW Fokker D.VII (early)
pcben80 posted a topic in Ready for InspectionFolks, Wanted to pass along some pictures of my recently completed early D.VII. This one gave me a little more trouble than the other WNW kits I've completed. Not sure why but I'm happy with the way it ultimately turned out. The only additions were the HGW seatbelts and the Master Models brass barrels. Hope you guys like it.
WNW D.VIIF - Wilhelm Hippert's "Mimmi"
mammut08 posted a topic in Works in ProgressHI All, I recently purchased a Silhouette Portrait craft cutter and, of course, I had to use it as soon as it arrived. As a test subject, I have chosen Wilhelm Hippert's Fokker D.VIIF. I used the native software to trace a scan of the "Mimmi." lettering on the top wing and then cut a stencil using a sheet of Tamiya masking material. Unfortunately, in my excitement to use my new toy, I failed to take pictures, but here are the results. I sourced the lozenge decals from Aviattic. These look fantastic. Rib tape was post-shaded with Tamiya smoke and both upper and lower surfaces where given a burnt umber filter. Finally, the whole thing was sealed with Vallejo satin clear coat. Here are a couple of pictures. I'm now going to get started on the cockpit and follow the instructions in order. Build updates will follow and I will fully illustrate the application of the Aviattic decals to the lower wings, as well as using the craft cutter to generate masks for the black and white checker board pattern on the fuselage. I do have a question for those of you who have build one of these kits already. Does anyone know if the completed cockpit interior will slide into place in an assembled fuselage from the front? This would make masking the fuselage much easier. Thanks for stopping buy and everyone keep up the good work. Dave
