Fokker D.VII OAW Leusch, Eduard 1/48
« on: February 03, 2019, 09:59:32 PM »

Fokker D.VII OAW  
 

After all the big scale entries here I like to take part with the first entry in quarter scale:
the yellow/blue Fokker D.VII OAW flown by Wilhelm Leusch, Jasta 19, October 1918 

The kit is untouched, PE set added (may be I will use more e.g. Master MGs) and the GB picture with Des is visible.



I would like to finish the Bristol fighter before, but since here is not so much rigging to do I hope to be able to finish it in time.

Cheers
Frank

This is a beautiful simpler subject to tackle, and should look beautiful in your capable hands, Frank!

Thank you my friends for your encouraging words.
But a Fokker D.VII is a mine field: everyone knows it and you can make a lot of mistakes. There are lots of varinats: Fokker, Albatros, OAW build, seemingly endless permutations of engine cowling desgin, lozenge ....
So there is also a careful study of ressources required.

Cheers,
Frank
