Show us your Fokker D.VI
« on: October 28, 2020, 12:43:19 AM »
To help complete our collection of specific builds, I include here the model that got me back into modelling after my second break from the hobby: Roden's excellent 1/32 Fokker D.VI. I'd probably do it a little different if I make another, but I thoroughly enjoyed the kit and it set me on the 1/32 road....

..... and maybe I should also post an old pic of the venerable Eduard 1/48 D.VI built back in the last century!
Although I knew it was probably inauthentic, I couldn't help but favour the colour scheme included in a plate in the old Blandford WWI Aircraft book!

Two excellent Fokkers! The 1/48th build brings back Memories. I did a hack job on an Old Aurora DR1 and DVII and painted it in those exact colors from that book!

Thanks for showing your nice Fokker D.VI biplanes! A type which should be included in every Fokker collection. Well done!

Cheers,
Frank

Great to see these displayed. Now if we can only figure out the true dimensions of the fuselage of this aircraft.

Hey Sandy ,

Really nice work on those Fokkers and a type we really don't see built of the Fokkers . So this is a real treat !

Excellent work Sandy and your Roden Fokker DVI has made me dig deep in the wardrobe stash to uncover my own Roden DVI. It really is a nice kit. Trouble is my kit was sitting atop a Tamiya Dam Buster Lancaster and a Monogram C47 Dakota and a Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Dreadnought... and everyone was calling out "pick me!!"

Thanks for showing us how well the Roden DVI looks.

cheers

Oh, I read in a review, that many of the Roden sprues are identical to the ones from the Dr.I . I was not aware, that both types are very identical.
Hmm, that may be means, that it is possible to improve the old Eduard kit with parts of a much more modern Dr.I kit, lets see ;)

Cheers,
Frank

Here is my 1/28 semi-scratch/conversion of the D VI built back in 2004, was fortunate enough to take 1st in category at the IPMS Phoenix Nationals
Used CSM 4 color lozenge decals, my own prop PE cooling jackets, scratch interior.
