Time to break out my little 'on the side project'... (I've been experimenting for some time with parts for this). I've always been fascinated by 'skeleton' models were you are able to see every little detail of the construction. So I have been harboring this idea for a very long time, to do a WWI aircraft as a skeletal version at some point. I did some initial test work on the S.e.5a project but never went with it. The work with the trusses for the 'Portalkran' for the Arado, was a test to see if something like this would be possible. And it made me want to 'Take the Bull by the Horns'... Some time ago I got this wonderful book of the Fokker Dr. I and it's full of detailed renderings of the parts for this iconic aircraft. Together with some scaled up drawings from one of the Windsock Fokker Dr. I Datafiles... It's a strange feeling, not having a kit to begin with. (Got some Roden 1/32 Fokker's in the stash as guide for the build) I've collected some aftermarket parts which could become useful for this build. Aviattic's cowling and stripped rudder. 'Part' and Tom's Modelworks photo etched detail sets. Brassin Spandau machineguns. CMK resin rotary engine. I've seen Eduards Stripped down Fokker in 1/72 scale and some larger scale models done this way, but none in 1/32 scale? I'm sure it will be a challenge and it will most certainly drive me crazy, nevertheless I will give it a shot, lets see how it goes... Cheers: Kent
