I haven't done much with it since last update. Putty and sanding is very boring. I have restarted with some work on the engine.


I used the compressor from the Revell Messaschnitzel and planned to use the air intake as well but it became to high. The top wing would have been placed very high.


Time to work at the other end of it.

Albatros_23.JPG I decided that I need to finish these so I managed to bring them to the painting stage.

Eggcellent. Pretty sure this is the first time I'm seeing the Fokker actually being built.

Well this is the third time I've built the Fokker.
The first time as a kid a long time ago. The second time 2005: triplane-t7917.html
And now with the Hemi V8 and all wings.

Well it is an interesting effect but it would have been easier and quicker to paint it all red.
