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.
So...the latest...after almost 40 years of this hobby I finally built the Rittmeister's triplane, or one of them at least. I used the Roden kit, 1/72nd scale of course. This is a problematic kit and, like many Roden issues, suffers from "The Poor Fits." On the upside, the detail of the moulding is typical Roden, with excellent work on the overall kit, but why can't they get the turtleneck or tailplane to mesh? Why are they fiddling about with cabane struts that are 0.5mm too short? Argh! And the landing gear? My gods...even now I think the whole thing is going to collapse of its own, minuscule weight. I will take the Eduard kit any day, but I felt I should do this to get it off my mind and the bench. Colors are all Vallejo except for the Fokker Green streaking from Mr.Kit. Some of the decals are cannibalized from an Eduard stash and the control horns are photo etch from the F.1 I am not sure what to build next...I might do another another Fokker--a XXI from Finland maybe...Or something Bulgarian...or Greek...what era should I do fellows? Point me in a direction... Let's see if the pictures load...dont get too close!
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
