Mike, I guess it is difficult to fully appreciate your extremely detailed model from the pictures. It is an excellent representation of the original taking into account all tiny details. It looks like the original  :)

regards,
Ivo

P.S., as your topic is called a Fokker pair, did you take pictures of those together? Would be nice.

Hi Ivo,
Yes the intention was always to have the pair, with a figure of Anthony Fokker and a camera man all on one display base.
I working on that now so should be able to post shots of the 'complete' model soon,

Mike, I already build some strip down models in smaller scale, but what you have done in this big scale is most impressive. This model is taken a full advantage of that scale and shows a huge number of details.
You put together a huge impressive list of parts and accessories into a single piece of art!

Thanks for the journey of creating it,
Frank
Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

All the superlatives have been used! Anyhow I agree with all of them. Cheers  Matt
