Finished - Eduard Fokker Dr.1 Hans Koerner Jasta 19 1918
« on: July 22, 2022, 06:02:19 PM »
Hello everyone – this is my latest completion, the 1/48 Eduard Fokker Dr.1. The kit is painted in the markings of Ltn Hans Koerner, Jasta 19, May 1918.

I added some detail to the cockpit, replaced the kit guns with items from Gaspatch, added the telescopic gunsight that Korner fitted to his machine, and shortened the undercarriage struts to correct the ‘sit’ of the model. The rest was out of box.

The Fokker streaked camouflage was from Aviattic, and the personal markings from Pheon. This is a lovely little kit which presents minimal problems in construction (save those that were self induced), and was a joy to build. For the build log, see here –

Thanks for looking, and feedback always welcomed!

Cheers,

BC

I can only confirm that this kit builds without problems. And you have made a true gem out of it. Its every aspect is worth every praise possible. Thanks for sharing, Brad.

Wonderful Brad, and one of my favorite Tripe schemes as a bonus. I really like the well controlled weathering, just enough to take the pristine effect away but not over done, lovely model! It will display beautifully with that "What If" float version you're laboring away at, be sure to provide a photo of the two together once that project is complete!
Cheers,
Lance

Love it. The cowl weathering is so perfect!! All the other little stains, fading and wear have been rendered masterfully. This on top of a great build, painting and decaling. Thank you for the build log that makes a great reference for building this kit.
