Beautiful and very neat build Rick! I love the "metal" shine of the engine panels

Thanks for dropping in and commenting Claudio! It will be a day or two before I have an update so leaving this photo just for fun.

Great photo!

(Now, you need to add Ernest to cover the fuselage)  ;D

Thanks again Claudio. I am going to try to get a figure that is at least close to Udet's pose. If only I could sculpt and convert figures  :(

A beautiful build of a very cool plane with a sensational colour scheme! Thanks for sharing Rick.

Cheers

A small update. The rudder is attached, gun butt pads added, and all is ready for rigging the control surfaces, final weathering and clear coats. I will add the lift rings and steps last. I also took the time to use My Camera vs My Phone and think the photos are a bit better

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

PS: I still wouldn't recommend handling it by the upper wing, but then again I don't do that with any of My fully rigged biplanes  8)

Thanks Steve. Yes very close now to finishing this one. The Nieuport 24 is on hold until I finish the Albatros DV and Pfalz DIIIa. Probably @ 3 months  8)

Oh Rick, you already finished her. I had been off here for a while and I was keen on seeing your progress. And it looks even better than I would have expected! A wonderful finish!

Thanks Andreas. Not quite finished yet. Still lacks the final clear coats and some pastels.  8)
