FOKKER DXXI 1/32 Mercury engine in Finnish service

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

I had recently started the FOKKER DXXI with motor Wasp conversion, I will leave unanswered  time because the conversion give  me not satisfaction for the moment ...

As I had a second kit "silver wings" I have decided to built the Mercury engine version, I acquired a vector engine.

This is not necessarily simpler because the chosen model also presents the famous "slots" on the wings. I see in many monography and this is the result, in certain monographs which I am inspired me as rather straight on my model but in others they are more inclined :BANGHEAD2:  :BANGHEAD2:

I can not change it despite the reviews I may have, Also I have started  the work  with the front of fuselage I have crafted air  cooler, and I cut the top of the fuselage behind the cockpit . I choosen the  FR 92 with his "donkey" on the front.

Hi at all,

 

 I engraved the wings here is  the result. I have a small problem  I have a few holes on the front of the wings , I applied the " Surfacer ", if you have another little trick I am listening to you.

Hi, Alburymodeler, Iain (32SIG)

 

yes,the slots  crossed the wing and was used to avoid stalling the airplane

and yes the built from Jeroen is very nice

 I hope that will be so nice in the  finnish version  :innocent:

Hi guys

finally I continue my progress from my Fokker D 21, I made this week different lamps ones at the wing and there on the front of the wing, I also re-engraved the wings because the slots locations were false and were be more obliquely,
