My 14 day self isolation build.........WnW Fokker D.VIIF

Recommended Posts

Some more work done today after our lockdown Mothers day, enjoyed the girls helping me cook a nice meal meal together for their Mum and just and nice relaxing day. 

 

Chosen the scheme for this build now and will be Red Z of Jasta 26.

Great start Andy!

 

The WnWs Fokker DVII is a great kit and goes together really well.Just be careful that everything is properly aligned. Especially the engine carrier frames.

 

One thing you may want to do is replicate the fabric ammo belt. I painted a narrow strip of decal material with a thin coat of khaki brown and then applied the decal strip to the ammunition within the chute. It works great and it's a simple, easy, enhancement.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Thanks for looking in Wolf, I've heard there a a couple of things that can catch you out so I'm a bit wary of getting the next few steps right.

 

I have been thinking about the fabric ammo belts and was going to try and use Aviattic french linen on white decal paper for the job, hopefully that should do the job hopefully.

Excellent work, sir. I agree, the big AEG should be your next go, unless you happen to come across an Albatros D.III. Any plans to make a diorama out of it?

Decided to make a start on the BMW engine and added the very fiddly Taurus update set as well as a set if their spark plugs.

Ready to get the cockpit assembled now and so far very happy with progress.
