I agree with Wolf, that engine and cowl is stellar.
Super realism, even the stand. Can't wait to see all the control rigging.
This build has woken up my itching of getting some of these WnW Fokkers or DH-2, or both ...
Outstanding work. You're going to turn a great kit in a real gem.
Thanks for all the replies , I just have not had time to do any work on the models ! I`m hoping to get back to building very soon ,
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 got all the metal work done and the Taurus engine is installed Here`s a few photo`s
Wow, that looks awesome Willi!
How do you do that ? it looks fantastic !..........Harv
With a dremal tool and toothpick with a 1mm disk of sandpaper glued to tip with CA glue .
That's using the old noggin for creative solutions.
Hi guys ,
This project is stalled till I can track down some micro tubing in the .04mm range. I usually order from JB Models but have no response for the last month ! Any Ideas ?
Fantastic work - prefect in every detail
