Fokker D.VII Group build
« on: April 28, 2011, 05:14:36 PM »
Hope you lads won't mind, but my fingers are kind itchy for the start of this GB.
Anyway here are No1 and mine entries.
Eduard Fokker DVII.
In my case I will build Dagelow's machine.
Two days 'til start....

Just posted my cellar-findings in the GB post... :)
I'm also itchy for this, but first I want to clean the table (to prepare for Zrenjanin competition, 07.05.) - therefore you might expect my official start on May 9th...

I'll be watching and enjoying this one from the sidelines--no kit. However, I am going to a hobby store soon.......... ;)

I was thinking that GB will start later in the year... No problem anyway, I will jump into soon!

Same boxkit as you, Samuraj, but with a Belgian deco.

What I will use in supplement of Eduard's kit is the following: decals provided with Blue Rider little book about Foreign D.VII. When the book was on sale you have to choose between the 1/72 or the 1/48 decal sheet, that is represented on the 2nd photo. I will build the "thistle" (2nd aircraft on the third photo). For the losenges, I will use Microsculpt ones and for the ribs, the Eagle Strike ones or simply the Eduard ones...

Yes, the book is really interresting. I did not know that the last one was used until 1940, but in Belgium there were still used in the first half of the '30s...

This is an enlightening subject, I must say. I spent some time learning about the whole concept of the lozenge camouflage material. I've always admired the patterns but never looked into the actual process of making the fabric in 1/1 scale. Fascinating stuff!

You and Draken35 have nice approach in separating parts and prepare them all in almost complete form and then join together. Dark color on wings?
