Hi Fredrik ,

Excellent job on your Fokker Fredrik . I really do like how the metal turning effecrt on the cowl and side panels turned out and with the super job on the rigging too boot !

Fredrik - I'm just seeing this thread now and am amazed at your work and also the philosophy shared during the construction/painting. A very good story - and you model is absolutely amazing.
Cheers,
Gary

Great Job! I really like the rigging and the cowling. Also the shadowing on the fuselage looks spot on in my eyes.

Wonderful work!

HELP: If anyone would be so kind as to take a couple of photos of their WNW Garuda propeller, it would be enormously appreciated! I would need one photo taken straight on and one taken from the side and I would need dimensions - total lenght and breadth (thickness from front to back).
Since I do not build 1/32 I can't help with pictures of WNW kits, but:
Dou you own the Windsock "Fokker Eindecker Compendium 1"? On the drawings there are views of the different airscrews in 1/48, the Garuda ones are on page 7 and 48. It was enough (together with photos) to sand a wooden Garuda fro my Fokker D.V recently.

Cheers,
Frank

Yes, well, there are a few things that could have been better... but for the first time I have replaced some parts with not just micro tubing but soldered micro tubing, so the next model might be perfect 😉.

How the new house coming along?

Thanks for the tip Frank! Alas I don't have that publication, but I'll see if I can fix that problem.

Very nice work on your Fokker, Faf.  The rigging looks very good.
I hope you can get the prop sorted out without much pain.
