Aircraft Modeling / Belgian Fokker D.VII (10ème Escadrille)
« on: October 31, 2010, 11:55:52 AM »
Hello friends,

Another of my builds: a post-WWI Fokker D.VII of the Belgian 10ème Escadrille, circa 1919-1920.

After the War, the Armistice conditions stipulated that Germany had to deliver 100+ Fokkers D.VII to Belgium. But many of them were in bad condition and only 35 were reconditioned to be operationnaly used. The Fokkers served in Escadrilles, and finished their career at the Belgian aviation school.

The model I've build has some particularities:
- The fuselage was remade, with Dope linen
- The photo shows that some elements of other aircraft were possibly used
- The windshield comes from a Nieuport 23
- Armament was removed

I used Techmod lozenges. It's the old kit Dragon at 1/48th scale: pilot comes from PJ Production.

That kit has won many prices in different contests in Belgium...

Can you tell me more about your turnbuckles method?

Thanks again for your kind comments!


- I think it could be good too to press louves on soft wood - Perheaps even better than my method... I didn't have thinked to soft wood...

- Gator glue haves the density of PVC glue. Very interresting to place little parts that you need a little bit time to adjust or position perfectly. Te reverse of the medal is that you cannot use that glue for fast work because she needs a looong time to dry - But when dry, it's hard!!! Another advantage is that when placing a part, if you have glue in excess, you simply remove the excess with a paintbrush with water...

- For the turnbuckles, I will use the method of "Agiosdimitrios" that you can see on Theaerodrome:

Aircraft Modeling / Future releases from a new producer: MustHave!
« on: October 24, 2010, 05:33:37 PM »
Greetings all,

Soon there will be a new producer on the marketplace: MustHave!
The man behind MustHave! is my French friend Philippe Jourdan (formerly Hi-Tech). He decided to start with a new production name because the new techniques that will be used differs totally from Hi-Tech. MustHave! will be at a level as good as Tamigawa!

The first kits produced will be in fact reboxing of some existing kits, but with ameliorations:

-The F-86K Sabre
This is the excellent Revell kit, but with a totally new fuselage for the "K" version.

It is to be noted that Philippe wish to include a Dutch deco in the box, but is lacking of informations. If a Dutch member of the forum can help with 3-view drawings (short wings aircraft, before retrocession to FIAT), any information will be welcome and you can contact me with a PM!

-The Curtiss H75A-7 Mohawk

There will be also a Dutch decoration in the box, but also an English one:

...And other projects will follow soon after...

That gives me good argument to try that scratchbuild...

Thank you very much. The Edaurd kit is very nice and pleasant to build. But I had problems with painting, Techmod decals for a Polish aircraft... And finally I opted for the Blau Maus...

Thank you!

Srecko, the only problem with the Renard 36 is that the resin existing kits (Vami, Dujin, HR Models - anyway it's the same molds) are simply too bad to obtain a good result...
Perheaps, later, I will try a full scratchbuild - but not before some years...
