Amazing progress, Rick! And a lovely contrasting pair of colourful triplanes! Really well done on some adventurous schemes... and don't ask me which upper wing is better, I wouldn't know! I think you need to decide that.... Enjoying these builds very much! Marc

Thanks Marc! I actually made My decision although it involved a bit of a re-paint on the left side of the original wing. I Liked the results and added the upper wing to the finished steps.

Those bottom 2 wings look out of place now - like they're from a different plane.
This one is coming along nicely, Rick.
So, how many Dr.1s do you have now?   ;D

Rick, what a colorful show! Lovely triplanes :-*
Very tempting, since I have about 7 Eduard Dr.I in stock (just counted, 2 x Dual Combo + ...)

Cheers,
Frank

Thanks Ken. Yeah, maybe that is why Kirschstein painted Every Surface on his DVIIs' with stripes  ::)   ::) I have four in the case and these two hopefully will make 6 8)

Looking Good Rick:  I am looking forward to seeing your Steinhauser completed.  I am doing it but with the Balkankreuz and the yellow square with red "X".  The eyes on the cowling look as good as the ones I have and I used a mask on one the decal from the Hobby Craft kit for the other, not sure which one I will use.  The striped one looks good as well.  I like your streaking and I will end up trying that on my next DR.I build.  Glad to see you had a nice Christmas holiday and look forward to more from you in 2021.

Thanks Mark! I still have the brows to touch up later but I am satisfied with the overall results on the eyes. Happy New Year and I am looking forward to seeing the results of your builds!

My these become more eye-catching with every update. Just super painting Rick.

Thanks Stephen! My last session of 2020: I added the MGs' and upper wing to the Roden kit and the fuselage crosses to the Meng bird. Now details will be added to both.

Happy 2021! 

Best,
