The Red Baron returns! - Fokker DR1 Triplane- Roden 1:32

Recommended Posts

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 cabinet. The figure of Manfred von Richthofen & Moritz (the dog) is from Elan13 miniatures, and a really beautifully sculpted and cast piece.

Superbly built and finished John.

It will make a rather colourful addition to the display cabinet too.

S U P E R B ! So it's not WNW; would I know? NO! You're doing a Sopwith Kennel next, right? With a Beagle (rather than a Lurcher)...please?!

Very nice build!  Did I read that his triplane was covered in silk and painted red at the factory?

Lovely work, John.

Totally agree with the comment regarding the figures and the base. They bring the model to life.

 

Well done!
