WNW Fokker D.VII (Alb) Jasta 73
« on: February 02, 2013, 10:21:13 PM »
HI All haven't posted here in a while but I've been busy building.....just finished this one was enjoyable build apart from the fuselage halves being a little difficult. This was my first attempt at applying Large losenge Decals, they went down reasonably well
but I did use Decal Setting solution to help them along. I'm not 100% happy with the end result but I can live with it , will never be a competition winner but what the heck!!

Great modelling, Sean. I may not like Fokker D.VII but you have built it to a very high quality. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice, Sean! I have to ask, what did you use on the leather coaming around the cockpit? It is really outstanding.
Cheers,

Hi All thanks for the kind words! Lance I used different Shades of Tamiya Brown acrylics and gave the section an oil wash with Winsor and Newton Vanderkyte Brown oil paint.

Very nice work, Sean, especially wrestling all that lozenge into place.  I agree with Ian- it looks loverly with the engine exposed.

Cheers.
