Belgian Fokker E.V
« on: October 31, 2010, 05:47:27 PM »
Just after having finished my D.VII, I've built this one: th eprobably only one Fokker E.V that beared Belgian colors!

It seems that that aircraft was found at Evere after the Armistice, and taken as personal aircraft by Lieutenant Van Cotthem. He first flew with a lozenge fuselage but after 1920 was repainted khaki and received the number "17" during the meeting of Evere in 1921...









The kit is the Dragon at 1/48th scale; pilot is from PJ Production

Thank you!

The color used to represent the Belgian khaki is a mix of Dark Brown and Dark Green. I used WWII references (the British colors used at the beginning of WWII).
The proportions were 50/50; but for the Spad I will probably use 60% Dark Brown 40% Dark Green.

It seem that during WWI Belgian made their khaki using a mix of "what they could find": perheaps PC10 + PC12, or a mix with French green...
Of course that would say that you can have a variety of +/- similar khakis...
That paint was fixed in the inter war, and our Foxes, Fireflies, SV5, Gladiators... were painted with a "standard" Belgian khaki.

So confusion in this field what is the normal. Who knows, maybe some captured material was used.

Cheers :)
