Title: Completed:WNW Fokker DVII 1/32nd scale: Jasta 4.Ernst Udet "DU Doch Nicht"
Post by: RAGIII on February 02, 2019, 11:45:06 PM
I have decided to build the controversial Fokker DVII "Du Doch Nicht" as my Entry/Tribute to Des. Still undecided as to what "Version" of the many possibilities I will go with. Of course my entry had to have stripes  8)

Hi Rick
Looking forward to yours as I am to all the builds in this group. I now have to look up "Du Doch Nicht" - "You No Nothing" (by my poor German)???

Cheers

Great choice Rick, and a scheme I'd like to tackle some day.
               "Of course my entry had to have stripes"

    The real question is "what color"! :o :-\

I'll be watching for further developments.

Great choice, Rick! Udet's „Du doch nicht" from Revell (1/72) was one of my boyhood's heroes! And although it seems that Revell did not reproduce the historically right look of this machine of Udet's, it's the only „true“ look for me, haha! 😀

Oh what a lovely project, I always loved the classic Du doch nicht! most, all red fuselage with white stripes over red. But I know, I know, it’s probably wrong. However, I am keen on following your progress, Rick!

Post by: RAGIII on March 07, 2019, 06:03:30 AM
First, thanks for all of the encouragement! No need to go into the history of Du Doch Nicht but I  will now "Officially" go over my choices on Manufacturer and scheme. Funny thing is I know from my poll that at least half of you will not agree  ::)
1. OAW built from the first production run.
2. Red and White stripes on the upper and lower surface of the upper wing.
3. Red Fuselage with Black Nose
4. Chevron on the upper tail
5. NO white stripes on the fuselage decking.

I have been involved in and read most of the arguments on this Machine so lets just agree that NO ONE can prove anything! My final decision was based largely upon what Jasta 4 was flying at the time as well as Dave Roberts discussion in The Fokker DVII anthology Vol 2.

QUESTION:
So my first actual photos. I will be using the Aviattic Lozenge for the lower wing surfaces. Next comes the challenge. I have identified the panels seen in the photos as the proper ones from the OAW sprue. My issue is which radiator to use and which upper cockpit decking. ( None of the choices in the WNW OAW DVII utilize the early panels or exhaust) If all else fails I will go with the similar items from the early Fokker built example as they were very close to the early OAW in Most respects. Any assistance is appreciated!

Unfortunately I can't help you with your questions, Rick, but I like the choice of your subject (Revell's 1/72 Fokker D.VII „Du doch nicht!“ Was one of my boyhood's heroes..!) and your decisions concerning the look of Udet's plane. Looking forward to your build!

The decal instructions verified I had selected the proper cowl panels and helped clear up the rest so again thanks for the link! Here is some of My reference for the build. I am starting with the wings figuring if I don't get the stripes right I can go to plan B  8) This is my 5th WNW DVII and I noticed a Small issue I had not seen on any of the previous builds. The upper wing trailing edge scallops did not match up so I had to do some filling and sanding on the scallops. ( Seems like the upper half was just a fraction shorter chordwise, on the scallops). Next up Aviattic lozenge on the lower wing and some nice red and white stripes on the upper.

A belated thanks T!.

So having finished the Nieuport build I went back to this one. As seen above I am using the Dave Roberts drawing in the Windsock Fokker Anthology as My pattern. I enlarged the drawing and did some basic measuring and began to mask. All went well with no major touch up needed.... until I counted the stripes and realized I was one short of what Dave says you need, 32 instead of 33  :-[ So I guess I will wait a day or two and strip this and re-paint  :'(

Hi Rick,
We are our own worst enemies - I'm guessing like me it will bug you unless you get it sorted.
It's a real shame as what you've done looks really good, especially with the risks involved in masking.
Whatever you do, this model is looking to be a stunner,

Mike

I agree with Mike Rick: but I really wonder a) how mny people would know how many stripes there should be and b) how many people would count them even if they knew the correct number?

That aside I know how much yo wish to make an accurate replica - hence the strip and repaint job! Good luck with it - the first attempt looked near perfect.

Thanks not only for the compliments but on giving Me reason for thought. I also received this comment from Aviation Artist and Modeler Robert Karr on FB.
" You know- that one heavily retouched photo is ( so far) about all we have to go on, and the more you fiddle with that picture and draw a gazillion lines on it, the more you realize that there's no 100% perfect information to be tortured out of it. Better men than I have tried plotting these stripes, but in my own several attempts I came up with anything from 32 to 34 stripes. IF you're happy with how your stripes look- I'd just say go with them!"

In addition I checked Greg van Wyngardens Drawing in Fokker DVII Aces book and he has 32 stripes although he leads off with white on the right wing tip and of course did the stripes black  8)

I will ponder this for a day or two  :o

So the Mechanics worked overnight and painted the stripes on the Undersurface of the upper wing. There were  2 choices here:
1. Do like Kirschtein's DR1 and reverse the stripes.
2. Do like Kirschtein"s DVII and keep them the same direction.
I chose option 2. why? Because I liked it  ::) So just a tad of touch up and I will move on to the interior.

Thanks Stephen I greatly appreciate your kind comments! A funny thing here. I had placed a bezel on the compass to see how it would look...NO GLUE! I forgot all about it, took the photos, handled it for hours, and it was still there today when I started working on the engine bay frames! So I took it off, painted it silver, then placed it on my desk. Next time I looked for it it was gone. Went to the carpet and actually found it!! So now it is glued in place  ::)

PS: I finished the engine mount frames without breaking or bending any....a first for me on this, My 5th, DVII  ::)

So, all of the markings are in place. Need to do a bit of touch up here and there but generally pleased with the results. I had to trim all of the crosses from other WNW DVII kits. The chevron was made using stripes from a WNW Albatros sheet cut to shape. The triangular front of the chevron was made from a triangle included on a Pheon Dolphin sheet. Lo and DU Doch Nicht are supplied on the WNW Fokker DVII F decal sheet.

Time for opinions!!!! As is obvious I have chosen OAW as the builder of My Du Doch Nicht. Moving on to the fin and rudder I asked Myself this question, If Ernst had just had the ENTIRE fuselage and empennage painted red why not the fin to match? Most, if not all Artists and Modelers go with a white fin and rudder per OAW practice. In addition some OAW DVII's had CDL fins and rudders. The question is am I pushing too far by painting the fin red and rudder CDL or white? The photo shows CDL rudder and red fin. Let Me know your thoughts...please!

I think this is simply guess, because he hides the middle of the plane on the photo.
On page 17 in Anthology 2 is a (grey) drawing, and here rudder and fin seems to have the same color as the stripe (you showed it on page 2 of this thread).
But nobody can prove it or the opposite, so feel free to paint a nice Fokker.

This is the nice thing about WWI models: there is some freedom, so not all models looks the same and all builders are right  8)

A quick search for "Du doch nicht" found pictures with a half red stabilizer:

Agree with Frank, the final decision is yours Rick (and I would do whatever I liked best).  Your option could have been done at the unit level and not the factory, so its anyone's guess.  Your current choice looks great and no one could definitely prove you wrong, so my 2 cents is......  your choice will be correct.   :o

Todays progress. The upper wing is mounted and glued in place. Just need to do some touch up on the struts. I will continue to add some weathering but feel like this one is finally in the Home Stretch! The fin and rudder are just resting in place as I am still considering the colors!

She looks beautiful, Rick!  You've really nailed the look!  I have a Fokker but haven't built it yet.  How do you find the strut strength with the upper wing joined?  I've always been concerned that everything will be pretty weak without rigging to make it more sturdy.

Thanks Gaz! As for the strength of the wing structure I feel it is quite strong. As long as the cabane tripod and rear cabanes are seated correctly everything stays in place with no movement. Like most WNW kits the gear is a bit wobbly  ;D

Absolutely stunning Rick! How are the judges going to pick? But who cares? We are all enjoying ourselves and sharing that. And that is what Des would want.

A wonderful model by you!

Cheers,
Alistair

I have been away Rick and am struggling to catch up - just so glad that I have found this. You have provided a super log and an even better model - no matter about the wing stripes! Des would have really liked this model - it is certainly of a standard that he would have made.
