Fokker Dr.I in red - 1:72 Revell

Recommended Posts

Here is the second of my two Revell 1:72 Fokker Dr.Is which I built back in 2006.
It represents 425/17, flown by Rittmeister Manfred Freiherr von Richtofen, Kommandeur Geschwader 1 (Jastas 4, 6, 10 & 11), Jasta 11, in France, March 1918.
 

The kit was fully painted with brush except for the final varnish which was airbrushed. The finish of the real machine was glossy but I went for a more satin-gloss finish as the glossy finish would have been too much in 1:72.

 

As usual, thank you for looking and all comments are welcome
Miguel

This is an iconic airplane, and you've done it justice!

Great work on the propeller blade painting, it looks very convincing.

Best greetings from Vienna,

Thank you very much @Hairtrigger and @Roman Schilhart.

 

Since almost everyone has commented on the propeller blades, here are my notes on the matter:

 

"The propeller was first painted Hum110 Natural Wood with lines of Hum160 German Red-Brown dry-brushed followed by a coat of Tamiya Clear Orange. This wasn't very convincing so I then painted lines in Hum72 Khaki Drill followed by another coat of Clear Orange and the result was much better."

 

Cheers

Miguel

That's an excellent looking finish you have there. Prop looks spot on.

A lovely wee Fokker Miguel. I don't know how accurate this kit is supposed to be but this looks the goods to my eye. The sheen on your paint is "just right" & the prop lifts it to another level. :)

Steve.
