SUB-SAM

Fokker D.VII 1/144 Double build!

Recommended Posts

After finishing the Nieuport I said I would do something other than a ww1 subject.

I must truly be stuck on ww1 because I've just started two more.

 

I Fancied the all-white craft of Herman Goering but also really wanted to try some of the lozenge camo. I couldn't decide so I thought why not build two at the same. 

Not sure which one to do along side Goering's but I can choose that later. 

 

First job:

The upper wings had considerably too much chord, about 1.5mm which is a huge amount in this scale. 

So I sanded this off to correct dimensions. 

Also the wings have recessed rib lines which I of course replaced with stretched sprue, yep every single rib!

Once sanded to shape it should look great.

Which kit are you using or is this a scratch build? Either way I am sitting alongside Corsairfoxfouruncle and will be interested to see these progress.
