Well maybe I should try and revive this build and give it another go...
Finishing the Fokker Dr. I 'skeletal' surely put 'the spark' back into the tripes...

So, the Triple Triplane build has begun adding the plywood to the inside of the fuselage...





Many of the parts were already prepared during the 'skeletal' build...

Almost all the parts/detailing of the interior parts are now done and ready for assembly.



I tried to 'sew the pilot seat bulkhead in place, using some fishing line...



After this, I made resin copy's of the bulkhead.



Frame parts with added detailing fuel control/line/pump, altimeter with spring mounts, scratched leather. map cases, magneto etc.



The pilot seats mounted with added seatbelts.

Considering that you are making three of these simultaneously, you are doing a great job and working very quickly indeed.

Are you and Rick attempting to get others of us on the forum to attempt multiple builds?

Hmm, I wouldn't know what others might be attempting Stephen.
The 'Jasta 11 - Flying Circus' build has been planned for years, as a 'counterpart' for my '74th Squadron S.e.5a diorama'.

It's still the one project that makes me smile every time I look at it, so, I'm looking forward to having this one on the shelf too   :)
Right now I just want to finish it before the WNW Fokker Triplane arrives...

An ambitious project for sure.  It will certainly be impressive when completed.

So, I'm considering the interiors done.





I doubt it that much of it will be visible when finished, well I know it's there...
