Really nice work on both Mark. I've enjoyed our "Mini" Group Build of the Meng kit, hope to finish mine today/tomorrow and get started on the Roden one. Now that you've completed both so beautifully in record time I've no excuses left to explain my slow progress! The Steinhauser markings are also amongst my favorites for this aircraft, if another Meng Tripe appears on my bench (and it very well might) it could grow beyond just a "vision"!)
   Looking forward to your third one after a preview of what's up your sleeve, should be a real winner!
Cheers,
Lance

Great work! Steinhäusers Markings are my all-time favorites for Fokker triplanes.
Exactly!
Started a Dr.I looong time ago, but failed to paint the Fokker streaking, so repainted with MRP "Richthofen's Red" ::) Still not finished.
So after seeing you model I will made another attempt to do _this_ Fokker once some projects are finished, very inspiring!

Cheers,
Frank
Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.

Thanks for looking in Jason and your kind comments, much appreciated.  Good 'ole Aviattic decals.  Went on nice and do the trick.

Thank you Frank, make that attempt to get one finished, it's a nice kit.  Glad to see that got your motivation level up.

Thank you Paul for looking in and your compliment, duly appreciated.  The base is a Squadron product.  I let it sit for about two years and finally got around to painting it up.  I don't think Squadron has it anymore, too bad as it is a neat base to display the model and open for lots of detailing and attention.  I will probably add some "grass" to it to "liven" it up a bit.  Thanks for looking in.

Thanks Lance for scoping it out here on the forum and leaving your comments, much appreciated.  My next Tripe is going to be Mohnicke's with the blue tail, but first.......it's Felixstowe but per your guidance will probably do the other Tripe coincident with the Felxistowe, talk about a "Barn Burner" of a card!

Great work!! No fear when you used the markings masks over the decal streaking?

Thanks for looking in Steve:  I did the masks before I applied the decal streaking.  The only issue was that the mask didn't get a good purchase on the upper wing rib stitching, otherwise they worked quite well.  With care, it is possibe to mask over the Aviattic streaking decals if they have sat for a day and were applied over a gloss finish and are set.  Be careful and use a low tack or rub the tape over your forehead, the decals are quite robust.
