  1. D32006 - Die roten Flieger Eduard 1:32 The recent release of the Meng 1:32 Fokker DR.1 Triplane has seen Eduard prepare three new decal sheets to accompany it. The first of them 'Die roten Flieger' has now been released, covering machines flown by the Richthofen brothers Manfred and Lothar. Manfred is of course the more famous of the brothers, and three of the four options cover his machines. First is 152/17, which was delivered in the standard Fokker streaky green camouflage, and the top wing and rear fuselage/tailplane was painted red at unit level.
  2. Most of us are familiar with the term 'limited run' and its connotations for more challenging builds. So presumably the opposite would be 'unlimited' run, and Revell's venerable Sopwith Triplane as been in and out of production for more than 55 years. For most of that time is was the only option for 1/72, until the advent of 21st Century versions from Kora. If its age should command some respect, this is tempered by the mould being absolutely shot, sharpness must have gone long ago, and oddly most parts seem shrunken. The kit must have repaid its investment many times over my now, so ought to

  4. My third Triplane finished, the DR 1 next.
  5. As promised in the WIP, here are a few impressions of the classic airframe of Richthofen's DRI, as I felt to have the duty to build once as an adult. So: check on this! I tried to give this a darker red, as usually can be seen on the pictures, which turned out fine, but totally failed to get this in the pictures. Also, as today is quite a dizzy day here in Vienna, I had to use a flash on most of the photos, so this counts as well. I did this almost 100% out of the box, only added two anchor points from Gaspatch, and used EZ line for rigging. Build was - as I see it now
  6. Part 1 of my triplane build, Fokker Dr1, Sopwiths Snark and Triplane in progress, others may follow ...
  7. Hello all, Wingnuts beautifully crafted Sopwith Triplane has been fumbled together by me over the course of the last 9 months. For anyone who knows me, that is RAPID! I can't fault the kit. It is pure New Zealand Gold. The only thing I can fault is my need to try to make everything look perfect. I'm sure I can work on that imperfection and as a result build more kits. I have one image for now, but will upload more soon. Cheers my dears Von Buckle KFC 1st Class
  8. Fokker DR1 Triplane, 425/17. Roden 1:32 I recently bought this Roden 1:32 kit of the Fokker DR.1, only for Wingnut Wings to announce their own kit to be released later this year. Of course I would prefer the Wingnut Wings kit, so before this one got relegated to back of the stash, I though I'd better build it. It is a perfectly nice little kit, there is nothing wrong with it except for a few simplified details, which are easily corrected. If it is of interest I did a Work In Progress thread on this forum. Anyway, I am pleased to add this to my display
  9. Fokker Dr.1 Triplane 1:32 Roden On hearing the news that Wingnut Wings are going to release 1:32 'Early' and 'Late' versions of the Fokker Triplane in 2020, I thought I'd better get on with my Roden kit or it might never get built. I bought it because Wingnut Wings have a general policy of not producing kits already available from other manufacturers, and I reckoned this was one they might never do. Wrong! It is pretty good but lacks the refinement of a Wingnut Wings kit, and also benefits from a few detail additions and corrections. Havin
  10. Hot on the heels of her Spitfire PR.1G diorama, completed in January 2017, my daughter started her new project in early February. This was going to be her third build, but having done such a good job of her Spitfire and her first model, a Red Arrows Hawk, I had confidence she would manage. This project was going to be a wall hanging picture / diorama of "Snoopy verses the Red Baron" using a 1/72 Revell kit and a scratch built Snoopy and kennel. Framing the picture allows it to be hung on the wall where it won't be damaged and also it will keep the dust off the models.
  11. Here is my interpretation of the Sopwith Triplane, my first in this scale. I doff my hat to Ian, aka @limeypilot who's own WIP gave me a lot of pointers and inspiration so that I can complete this bird. The cockpit was all but scratch-built, kit MG replaced with a Miniworld Vickers MG...very nice. Fuselage tail lengthened, kit axle replaced with a scratch-built variant. Underside painted with Humbrol Linen enamel, I thought was too yellow, so I'll change that for the future. Topside was painted using Tamiya Khaki Drab, a good colour I think for a PC10 finish. Kit decals. The tiniest of PE cont
  12. Fokker DR.1 Profipak 1:48 Eduard With the introduction of the Sopwith Tri-plane and its appearance over the Western Front at the beginning of 1917, the Allies found themselves an aircraft that proved itself superior to the Albatros fighters then in use by the German forces. The Fokker company responded by converting an unfinished biplane prototype into the V.4, a small, rotary-powered triplane with a steel tube fuselage and thick cantilever wings, first developed during Fokker's government-mandated collaboration with Hugo Junkers. Initial tests revealed that the V.
  13. Hello, I'm currently building Revell's 1/72 Fokker Dr. I triplane (WIP thread here). I'd be most grateful if someone could clarify if stretchers were used in the rigging and, if so, what type. I haven't been able to find pictures on line to clarify this. I have Eduard's 1/72 stretchers and control horns PE set and would like to use the most appropriate types. Thanks in advance Jaime
  14. 1/32 Sopwith Triplane. Correcting the Roden Kit With the Wingnut Wings SopwithTriplane kit having long since sold out, the only game in town is the Roden offering. Hannants had them on special offer recently, so I was tempted and purchased one. There is one major problem with the kit however, and that is that the fuselage is too short by about 6 mm. I believe it was Rowan Broadbent of Pheon Decals, John Adams of Aeroclub, and Brian Fawcet who originally brought this to attention, and Brian offers his own resin fuselage correction set. Here If you have a Roden kit and want to
  15. Sopwith Triplane. 1/32 Roden. The Sopwith Triplane was developed from the Sopwith Pup, but was built in relatively small numbers. Despite being a highly successful fighter it's front line service life was also comparatively short. It was difficult to service and maintain, and was never adopted by the Royal Flying Corps, with service being restricted to the RNAS ans one French squadron. The Roden kit has been around for a while and was bettered by the Wingnut Wings kit in 2012. Unfortunately the Wingnuts kit sold out very quickly, meaning that if
  16. Fokker DR.1Triplane 1:24 Merit International Instantly recognisable as one of the most distinctive aircraft of The Great War, the Fokker Triplane's fame far exceeds its actual contribution to the war effort. It's service life barely stretched to 6 months, and the number built was tiny (320) in relation to other contemporary fighter aircraft such as the Albatros D.V /Va (around 2,500 built). Undoubtedly it was the association with Manfred Von Richthofen 'The Red Baron' that made it such a famous aircraft. Even members of the public with no interest in aviation will surely be aware of
  17. Completed this just in time to hand it over to the Kingston Aviation Heritage Project last time at the West MIddlesex club. It is one of six Sopwith models we built for them to be used in their desire to keep the Kingston's heritage in the public limelight. After handing them over we were given an excellent presentation on the history of Sopwith which became Hawker and finally BAe and the aircraft they built in Kingston, Dunsfold and Langley. Although this was my first ever build of a biplane/triplane in this scale i enjoyed it for the most part and learnt a lot, which hopefully I'll be abl
  18. Sopwith Triplane, pic thanks to Mark Mills. This is a replica built by Northern Aeroplane Workshops with an original 130hp Clerget engine installed. Sir Tom Sopwith, the founder of the original aircraft company, who supported the project throughout his later life, honoured the society when he decreed that Northern Aeroplane Workshops triplane should be considered as a late production example. This is reflected in manufacturers plate in the cockpit being No 153.
  19. Sopwith Triplane 1:32 Wingnut Wings One of the things that I find interesting about First World war aviation is the variety of aircraft types that appeared as each side struggled for aerial supremacy. If you put yourself in the position of a designer back in 1914 a lot of what we take for granted today was unknown and had to be worked out, resulting in some quite unusual looking aircraft. Low powered engines require a generous amount of lift and therefore wing area in order make flight viable, thus the proliferation of biplanes and scarcity of monoplane designs. I remembe
