Eduard Fokker Dr.1 48th (2)

Putting the wings on the Fokker - I haven't seen many builds of the Eduard DR. 1 - apart from perhaps Stephen T. Lawson's on aeroscale - but those that do exist all state that the kit assembles well. I found the struts a little difficult to fit through the centre wing, managing to snap one completely. Superglue has definitely been my friend on this build. Both cabane struts broke as well needless to say and fixing those was tricky, but the top wing was eventually attached securely without too much damage.

Just visible in the lower pic is the delicate molding of the distinctice saw-tooth ply covering over the upper surfaces of the wing leading edge

  1. Looks like a nice kit despite the usual difficulties with multi-wing subjects. I really like your streaking effect on the fabric, you've pulled that off well!
