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.

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

I'll be watching for further developments.

I would say "But not you" or "Of course not you" to shot him down.

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! 😀

The king of stripey aircraft stripes again!  Really looking forward to following along, Amigo!  I know it will be another one of your master works.
Cheers,

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!

 Rick,
Funny thing anytime I see a striped fighter you're first modeler to come to mind my old friend. I'm so looking forward to following your Fokker progress. Best of luck to you in the GB.
Highest Regards,

A stripey one from Rick: this will be worth keeping an eye on. Best of luck rick - I will be dropping by periodically as time allows at the moment.
