  2. Eduard 1:48 Fokker Dr.1

    The last few bits’n’pieces added, grab handles, flare canisters etc. and control wires. The control wires were made from 0.02mm copper wire cut to length(s) these were then painted and CA’d in place The remaining spars (rear wing) and grab handles were fitted along with the flare canisters and foot stirrup then a touch of very light weathering and she’ll be RFI. you can see the RFI photos here… http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027212-eduard-148-fokker-dr1/ until next time as always, any suggestions or comments will be gratefully received. rgds John(shortCummins)
