That is really coming on a treat Rick. I too like the saet bck - the lozenge canvas effect looks very realistic indeed.

Further work on the interior. I have dirtied up the seat and added the belts. Also added control wires and cables from the spark advance control and throttle. Bracing wires added but need further work.

Rick, you show here a really nice Fokker with beautiful details! My Fokker will not reach that level due to the smaller scale :(
It's a great pleasure to watch your progress!

Cheers,
Frank

Superb work on the innards, Amigo!  That seat is especially convincing.
Cheers,

Thanks Frank but having seen what you do in 1/48th I have no doubt your details will be awesome!

and the interior is basically finished. Upper decking resting in place. Next up engine bay frames and engine.

That interior is the dog's b...cks Rick. The extra details that you have added and the worn look to the seat really make the whole thing look much larger than it really is.

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  ::)

Excellent looking interior, Rick.

Your 5th D.VII?  You must  know this plane really well.
