Aurora 1/48 Fokker Eindekker

Recommended Posts

This is one of the venerable old Aurora WW I aircraft kits. Goes together well, but, of course, not up to what most would expect today. I added a basic interior and had to replace the decals because they had gone beyond yellow to brown.

Wow, that takes me back! 

Woolworths carried these kits for a while in the 1970s and I bought this one. It came with a vacform base, if I remember correctly. 

Lovely job.

Some impressive upgrading in those modelling skills applied. Nice one

 

And when you tell kids today that all you had back then to make a Lancaster was a block of balsa, your Dads old rusty pen knife, dope and talc and Britfix glue out of a tube they just don’t believe you

(apologies to Python lover’s everywhere)

Splendid in its simplicity! You did a wonderful job with the engine and cowling and the rigging, and a very neat finish overall. As I say: Building the latest super kit means assembling, restoring a vintage kit means modelling, (and scratch-building is an art) 😉

Very nice.  A great result from what must be a very basic kit, judging by its age.  Nice work on the rigging as well.
