1:32nd scale Fokker D.VI


Recommended Posts

Hi all,
Fokker D.VI of Kest 1a (Home Defence) Staffeln, operating from Mannheim in South-West Germany during the Summer of 1918.

The full build log can be found here:

 

 

As usual I've uploaded to my web site a fully detailed build log (in Adobe PDF format) that can be viewed or download. Just click the PDF icon in Gallery 4.

Thanks for everyone's support and comments - much appreciated,

 

Mike

Love the weathered lozenge finish - looks for all the world like you've stretched fine fabric over the frame. Beautiful!

 

Cheers,

 

Mike

Hi Thierry,

"kitbash the Meng Dr.I with the Roden wings".

I don't see any real problem merging the Meng DR.1 with the Roden Fokker D.VI wing.

Remembering of course that the D.VI was developed from the DR.1 and was the predecessor to the D.VII.

Of course you'd have the problem of removing the DR.1 lower and middle wings.

I reality there isn't that much wrong with building the Roden kit and probably would be less work that trying to convert a DR.1,
